Ehsan Sehgal

I came alone
I was alone
I am alone
I will be alone
I will go alone
In my life
I have to face
Sorrow, grief
And pain
I have to suffer
No one is capable
To share my thoughts
That only I know
And think
Nobody has time
And interest
To see your inner wounds
Status, rank or wealth
Beauty of the face
And the body
Until you own
Fragrance of that
Attract the people
To enjoy and use
But not you
As a soul alone
And remain alone.
