Standing before the mirror after a decade
I suddenly realised
I too have become a facade
and my noble qualities did get fade.
The world which is really cynical
made me skeptical.
I was amicable before.
But those were the days of yore.
Discovering myself too featuring hypocrisy
was astonishing for me.
Now I am engulfed in dirty politics
have started applying all those cheap tactics.
Running in this rat race of mad competition
I found myself a selfish person.
In order to fulfill my insatiable desire
I have become so dire!
The journey to adulthood made me cruel
as I had to survive in this battle.
I am now unable to find in this ambiance
my misplaced childhood innocence.
I thank you baby dear
as your face like mirror
made me remember
all those qualities which I
possess no longer.
