You Lost All

by Ehsan Sehgal

You have lost
Your trust
Your honour
Your dignity
Your values
Your importance
Only for your egoism
Semblances, pretences
And the lies
The beauty lies in good
Right, honest
And humble character
You misused, abused
And insulted
The great
And sacred names
To enclose with your name
And display the sexy
And nude images
Titling that with love
You are shameless
You don't care
Respect of others
You are a prisoner
Of your selfishness
Your fate is failure
At all corners
You gain nothing
God may bless you
Be happy
With all your ugly practices.
