In need of praise

This post was written in 1 minutes.
When walking to the bus stop this evening after work, I was looking forward to checking Facebook to see if there were any comments or likes to yesterday's post. What if no one would have reacted? I felt some sort of crave to be praised or valued. Strange that I should need this to recognize my own worth. Animals don't suffer from this kind of uncertainty.
A poem started to form in my mind.
And of course I'm hoping for some kind of praise ;-)

Of all species
on this earth
none as much
derives it's worth
from being liked
and getting praise
as our uncertain
human race
