Sporadic selfishness of Roses and Lilies

Sporadic selfishness of Roses and Lilies
A Poem by Faridoon Shahryar

My eyes are hungry to
Capture beautiful landscapes 
Maybe to wipe out 
The worrisome horrors
That were inadvertently 
Peddled non stop 
By the misplaced ideology 
And the intolerant liberals

Parched breath
That was sapped
Of all moisture,
Aided by the glorious 
Perfume of life 
Is once again 
Lusting for 
The roses and lilies 
That were always there 
But maybe I was 
More keen on 
The incorrigible stench,
The blame lies with me
And I accept my fault. 

Call it an escape 
Or a form of weakness
But I am clinging on 
To a ray of respite.
I am open to fighting 
But let me also enjoy 
My share of sporadic selfishness.
