Are You Believed?


You may walk with people laughing
Hands in hands behave as best pals
May your blood relatives love you
You may appear to them the one

What appears is not true always dear
Feelings crawl many times due to fear
To lose one you suppose to be special
We then behave mysteriously coward

“Are you believed? ”Runs in mind rapidly
The brain is stormed and fills in haze
Stupidity of life emerges, dreams shatter
The world turns up to the devil, insane

The one you love most in your life
For whom you’re ready to sacrifice
Look into her pretty eyes till depth
There lays the undiscovered truth slept

Surely she believes you this you know
Passionate belief makes beliefs grow
You believe each other the same way?
Or both of you try each other to betray?

Your friends convoy you days and nights
Never let you go out of their sight
But when question comes “do you believe? ”
Tragedy occurs and you feel you’re deceived

It’s not you’ve crooks all around you.
Not you’re only one who is never trusted
You’re neither disgusted nor disbelieved
But this is life, here you can’t argue

You dared once and asked”life! Are you believed? ”
Life: “ah! So far from life what you’ve perceived? ”
Dear we all are mortals. Belief is a blessing
We’re not believed, we don’t know actually
What it demands and what’s its meaning
