Behind the Veil

by Nishat Akhter

Life is not what I thought it’d be
Beneath all those words of hope
All those promising sunshine
How could I not see!
There was a glimpse of devastating lies peeping through.

Where tragic truths are denied
And luscious lies are cherished.
Tired of tinkering the trivial unpolished
While the nature is forgotten to be nourished.

Life is not what I thought it’d be
All those bright future billowing above the haunted past
How could I not see it was already devoured by ruthless rust!
