the glittering prize

the tears from my heart have run dried

but you can still sympathize with me

my expectations have died their own death

but you can still empathize with me

sympathy can bring enemies together

you are my best friend anyways

but don’t laugh on my situation today

as it was not the case always

I am the victim of so called selfless love

that has claimed many hearts till date

I would have been a happier person

had I watered the plant called hate

but I have no qualms whatsoever

as I never gone for a compromise

though failure has embraced me today

it appears to me as a glittering prize

the bare facts

men are born free but never independent

most of the men always remain shackled

piece of land takes away peace of mind

most of the men always remain rattled

men in general try to have an upper hand

but most of the men always remain flaccid

decency is indisputable ornament of women

and most of the men never remain placid

as money is the biggest known trouble

most of the men always remain troubled

as women are the toughest known puzzles

most of the men always remain puzzled

lack of focus is the reason for the failures

most of the men always remain unfocused

it is said that the honest is the best policy

still most of the men never remain honest
