If You Do Not Say

Ehsan Sehgal

As the God knows
All the secrets
All the wishes
Of human
But you get nothing
Until you do not ask
I am not the God
He is my maker
He gave me the instinct
I feel and see
But the nature hinders
That if you do not ask
If you do not take steps
If you do not say your say
If you do not express
Your feelings, emotions
I do not push or take first
Even I know
Your silence is showing
The confusion
In other words, the refusal
Or no interests
That is why
There is no other way
Except your clear endorse
And clear yes.
