Ulveena Aitzaz (31st August,1995)
They say I let my guard down,
They give me a hardened frown.
And suddenly I realise that just maybe,
This time it's not them who's wrong but me.
Even if it was as long as a fortnight,
Its now going to bring severe plight.
With just two more days to go,
I feel once this is over, my insides will blow!
I've tried to hide them but in time they will show,
I'm saddened and slowly growing low.
I wasn't frank,
But then again, I have my 'devilish plans' to thank.
Now that it's done,
I stand still and stunned.
Shocked at how vulnerable I can be,
How my own actions are out to get me.
But with that I hope and I pray,
That happiness knocks on your door and comes to stay.
