All That Glitters Is Not Gold - Poem by Mohammad Akmal Nazir

We face many truths and many lies
In our daily life,
But we always see the truth with doubt,
And we often believe lies around us,
For truth has no charm,
It's straight forward,
And sometimes utterly monotonous,
While lie has its own charm,
It's very seducing and attractive,
It draws towards it,
And we become its victim intentionally,
But after all
'All that glitters is not gold.'

    Yes, of course. Truth is very simple so it doesn't need any kind of decoration. But, to hide a truth we tell lots of lies with charm and mostly we get success because of utmost decoration.
    It is also true that we can speak truth and can never bear to hear it.
