Smart by nature...


smiles and tears
safe in fears
torn by our hopes
free yet tied
released in long ropes
in the battle

we stand to fight
blinded insight
do we really know?
or is it just a reality show?
breeding some cattle

we sink in confusion
freeze in the fusion
asking the impossible
achieving the compatible
trying to settle

acting smart
cheating the heart
time is the enemy
and the beloved
that is the riddle

we say the words
pleasing the lords
but are we pleased?
or may be seized?
seeking fake medals

human greed is the answer
guilty regret is right after
we were born mourning
screaming for another morning
to restart
aren't we smart?
or may be we are just a renovated chart
evaluating from an early stone age.

Great lines and depth to this poem. The above lines were my favorite. You're building quite an impressive blog archive, Abeer

WoW! So powerful and fantastic. You made us see life as a battlefield. I totally am speechless, I really don't know what to say!

we were born mourning
screaming for another morning
