Move Or Forget

Ehsan Sehgal

I did not lie
Before I met you
But I confess that
You compelled me
With your wrong
And improper motion
I lied just to let you feel
Do not hurt anyone
Who is already facing
The pain, grief and sorrows
Caused by the cruel world
Believe me
Without doubt
I do not think
Anyone else
Except you
And only you
It is the truth
You discovered me
You have to take
All steps
Toward journey's end
That lies on you
Move or forget all ambitions.
