Is The Good Defeated?

Ehsan Sehgal

A place of worship
There, where
People worshiped stone
I wish,
If I was also a stone
People would also worship me,
But I am human
I enjoy looking towards
Beautiful things, people
I think only about myself
I pray for myself
I don't feel pain
For others
I live in my selfishness
I don't care anyone else
I do all things
Only for my purpose
I am not the one
Everyone is supreme here
The evil doesn't exist anymore
We become the evil
The visible evil
Is the good defeated?
I think and think
Who will tell us now
The world becomes normal
When and how?
