Selling Souls

They know
They are selling it
And they have a reason
Also.

We fool ourselves
We also sell souls
But without a reason
Thinking we never did

We are the superior ones
Looked up in the society
Chaste in our own terms
But naked in our reality

Naked! When we stand
In front of ourselves
Eyes piercing
In the skeletal foam

Then we understand
We also bartered;

Bartered the soul for glitz
Body for recognition
Faith for fulfillment
Thoughts for divinity
Kisses for vehemence
Touch for possession
Tears for ephemeral joy
And…

Kilos of sand for a pinch of sky

Only to understand
The ones in brothels knew
They sold bodies, not souls
What we did
All our life?
