I Left All Liars

Ehsan Sehgal

I have left all liars
Including innocent
I could not do else
Except that
I needed to relax
They deserve
The special thanks
For they awoke me
They taught me
They showed me
The reality and life
The value of the truth
I do not notice them anymore
I do not feel any devotion
Affection, respect for them
I had once thought
Such people are the ugly blemish
On the humanity
I believe
God protects the good ones
From such people
I pray, and I hope
I stay safe, and far from them.
