My Immortal Life

Ehsan Sehgal

The selfish, opportunist
And the unfair people are gathered
Around me
I don't care it
If I look at the visibility of
I see to the end of a view
All people are the same
There is no way
To get rid of them
Except to be patient on cruelty
Which is hidden
In a manner of civility
Politeness, honour, admiration
And affection
They are slowly and slowly killing me
I am silently letting them being killed
One day I will be free of all pains
I will fly towards my immortal life
Where there such people would not exist
