World of misery

Written by: Hanan Essam

When the time no sooner flies;
when grief and sadness flushing the cries.
Fill the emptiness where the sorrow lies;
bringing up painful surmise.

Oh! what a restless world.
Where the values in pennies are sold;
undress us with no mercy in the cold.
Lies and and false claims are daringly told;
prevailed in pride and loftiness mould.

Oh! what a world so spoiled.
Where valuables so clearly soiled.
Where the calmness in fire is boiled.
Where the freedom forcefully coiled.

This is the world of sadness;
This is the world of madness;
This is the world of baldness.

What can I say; This is the world of misery.
