Why Today?

Why today?
Many ask
Why not today?
The reply should be

For Good things
For jovial things
For gatherings
For Picnics
For Meeting a lover

You want it today

For all other
which does not
suit you
you dont want it today

This sheer hypocrisy
You are not true
You are a false ceiling person
Underneath one
And above one

Who will or can trust you
Be honest
Be it for your better
Or for your tomorrow
Do it today.. today…
