This way

Filed under: Poetry — by Zuhair @ 8:09 am

It’ll never happen, will it?

It will always be this way.

You will spend more than you need to,

and you will never have anything useful to say.

You will trod on noisily,

and think, ‘I hope he notices me.’

You will paint your face without fail,

even if it turns your face stale.

Your mind will think of trivial things,

and you will listen to whoever sings.

It’ll never happen, will it?

It will always be this way.

They will have nothing at all,

and when they try to speak, you will ignore their call.

They will suffer silently

and think, ‘When will the world see me?’

They don’t even have cloth to wear,

they can’t afford to think of pretty and fair.

Their mind will think of survival, if not death.

They’re the ones who pay your debt.
