“Greed” of human heart

There hasn’t been a time when I cared,

Every step and turn I took, on this path I tread,

I’ve never feared,

The path was bent, steep and never straight,

Every goal I’ve had has been reached late,

Never did I stop to think what was my reward,

Whatever I kept was only for me to move forward,

Rest I gave to friend and foe,

Never minding if I was in a high or low,

“You have a good heart” keep saying they,

“World needs more like you” is something else they would say,

I have trodden this path for far too long,

And my “good heart” can no longer stay strong,

I wish I had somebody to take care of this heart,

It has lost belief in me as its grown smart,

A river that keeps giving needs a source to replenish,

A forest without rain would soon vanish,

Is it selfish to ask for love?,

Or is it greedy to be not content with whatever I have now?

I am an introvert and just a software developer, living miles away from people who love me, searching for the meaning of life and what makes me happy.

Thank you for the advice!! ☺ Been content depending on the situation, and the control I have on it, is something I am learning now… but am trying.
