You looked at my cosmetic face: English Poem by Asma Tariq

 

You looked at my cosmetic face
But why didn’t you see the scars behind,
Dear I’m still the old..

You noticed my fake smile
But why didn’t you feel the sadness there,
Dear I’m still the old..

You listened my power speeches
But why didn’t you read the poems wrote for you,
Dear I’m still the old..

You saw the new book on the shelf
But why didn’t you smell the flower inside,
Dear I’m still the old..

You thought I’m changed
Like the World
Like the People,
But Dear I’m still the old,
With the same heart
Who walked with you on the shore
Once holding your little hand…
