As The Blame

Ehsan Sehgal

You lied
And could not speak the truth
I, the prisoner of age
Became afraid of the world
We are both cowards
Who have not the right
To live and not die
How can we love,
Love is the name of bravery
We are anonymous
For own life
At own life
We are just living
As the blame of ourselves.
