Far. But, Fair - Poem by Mousheera Shafik

I want to get back to this yore
But, every second it gets yonder
I want to be that pure
But, I can't do it any longer
Wanna run, scream and hit the floor
Because burdens are getting stronger
Words were spoken, words were swore
But, every time it makes you wonder
Why do people insist to war?
Why do they insist to go farther?
It's the lies that we adore
Make our lives go harder
We think they help to win the war
But they kill feelings and bring hanger
They don’t see the way it was before
It makes truth go uglier
You think you are trying to beware
But what you do not see make your deep within so bewilder
For rules of humanity you give a belabor
But, the way human you are just goes under
Look… these were your dreams of being what you are
But they just slip away because you are getting slender
Being a zealot makes you so bizarre
And it turns you in a hand of a slaver
Who insults the human that you are
And all you have to do is a painful simper
Just look at what are you fighting for
And try to find yourself an answer
Why you knocked that door
And why do you have to be that sponger

    'It makes truth go uglier'

    mousheera! wars, whether, between individuals or states are fought for some nefariously ulterior motives. if, they are aimed at minching of money and accumulation of power, there remains no good reason that they may be criticised. your poetic effort to denounce such an abominable practice may nopt contribute much to the good of masses, but surely, it will raise few deonmstrations of son g and dance.
