Painting POV

Writer: Ola Refaat

Editor: Ahmed Ashry

I am colorful
I am still
I am here to stay
Generations would pass
But I'm still here
Eyes wide open
I see the happiest moments
I celebrate with the people
Yet they won't celebrate with me
It’s okay;
I’m used to it.

I see the devastating moments
I watch how they break down
They think no one sees
I see the fear in them
I know how it tears them
Fear has killed their hopes more than anything else has
They don't know I see, however, I do 
I am the painting on their wall,
