As You Want

Ehsan Sehgal

If you make me a fool
I will be as your sick desire
If you flirt me
You will find me the same
For your ugly enjoyment
If you play the zigzag
I will leave you to do that
Accessing your moral values
If you think I am intellectual
I will prove with my words of wisdom
If you love me with your heart
You will find me
In every beat of your heart.
If, you open your eyes to the mirror
You will see the truth
Do not degrade yourself
Do not underestimate others.
