Inadequate Translation

A greater portion of the day is not translated at all

We assume, react, and wait for the favourable responses

It is not about the day being dwarfed by the inclement time

No! The day is just a day; it should not be heard with patience

Even the summaries are terribly narrated and rushed through

Why lift the consciousness from the wailing moments?

Drown the day too with commotion and lead it through a secret passage

Towards a doomed world where the incomprehensible tongue orders

Surrender at the first hours of enthusiasm and glory

Deviated through myriad manipulations towards an early end

It is not only the casualty of language but also heaps of sentiments

Reminding of the past that block the passage with stubborn layers
