He asked me, “What are you afraid of?” and I was frightened just by the answer that came to my mind.
Yes, frightened to my feet like there was no ground beneath
From a lovely smile, my face changed like it was losing teeth.
But I could answer that question and people around laughed
I turned to dark blue in seconds from a bright shaft.
Fear struck me hard, I wasn’t knowing of what was going around
But my thoughts swayed me to another level, another ground.
I was afraid of lying, of being untruthful or even hearing ruse
For me it wasn’t just a word misuse.
It meant playing with hearts, cheating them with false smiles
But I would regret a lot, cry a thousand miles.
I couldn’t face anyone with a lie
I couldn’t trust anyone again who once said a lie.
It was like once a liar, it continues
It was just another form of excuse.
There was no good in cheating
This was so much like mistreating.
Yes, I’m scared, even today, till date
But I wish I never lose this fear, never in fate.
It’s simple just say the truth
No questions, no burdens, no pain in the tooth.
I don’t wanna hurt even if I don’t get caught
I just want to live a life the better way, always sought.
Keep goodness and see how it changes the way you feel
Because life always has a lot to reveal.
