The Terms Of Evil

by Ehsan Sehgal

I am not afraid
I can face
I am facing
All the evils
Of outside
Around me
Surround me
With beautiful offers
As like sex, wealth
High status in society
None of that's important
In my eyes
But I am always afraid
Of two severe terms
Of evil inside me
In every breath
That confront me
Break me
Sometimes, blow up me
That's my selfishness
And the ego
Never die that
Until the death of entity.
