Behind The Scenes - Poem by Rayan Ali

We expect the unexpected
We hope for the better
Or more than what we have
We concentrate on the lame
We aim for the greed
And in the end, we become
The enemies of our selves.

We want for the deepest ocean
We see through the broken glass
We wonder in the darkest minds
We rely on the foulest among us
We walk on the path
That is shown to us
And at the last, we get lost.

We desire more than we could afford
We want more than we need
We push our inner self out
We dream above our rights
We hope for dawn, when it’s light
We seek for wrong, but not right
And when we do realize our foolishness
We live upon misery, but not on life.

But amongst some of us
There may exist more fearless
And rather the ones to step out
But not step in and hide their selves
Because heart and soul
We all are built for life
Thus, this is the real us
‘Behind the scenes’.
