THE WORLD WE LIVE IN
means “I want more”
and smile is green light.
A world where everything is paradox-
An illusion is reality and truth is conspiracy.
A world where fate is decided before birth
and justice is seats of lies-
To wear your true colour is a crime.
A world where discrimination, racism
and hatred rule our lives
while we hide from the image in the mirror
