Life is Short

A poem by Sharifa A.

Sunset in Kabul

Life is short
Every single moment
the situation changes
Feelings change
Desires change
Your looking changes
Almost everything changes

Before getting married
Feeling shy to talk with a boy
Hard to express feelings to the lover
Just keep thinking about getting married,
child, house and all dreams

It seems after getting married everything will change
But nothing changes
You are the same as before
Same feelings, desires and hopes

Do you know what will change?
Age will change
So you can start by making some changes
You grow old day by day
Let’s grow happier than before each day.
