When Truth Begs for a Refuge                                                                   

Oh God! Why do I cry?

Would you even reply?

Would you come down to me? only once!

Hold my hand, and tell me

The fault does not lie with me

The fault lies with our manmade world

We built it the wrong way

And now we do not fit apiece

Why do I fail or do I even fail?

Is there anything like failure?

Though failures also accomplish something

In your big program, we have no say!

Is there anything like destiny?

Or the journey is the whole thing?

I find both of them crying

 the offender and the victim

we suffer for the sins,

 we do not even commit

I see lie thriving and truth begging for refuge

The lie has claimed a sovereignty

The truth licks the dust and

 Waits for its conviction.
