A proud false friend

Often I think of the World
The link between the things in it
With the mountains and with the mines of gold,
With the ocean and the deepest pit 

The friendship with the world we see
Is always false and nothing else
The false friendship which always be
Is from the face and not from pulse !

The moon and stars are the friends of sky
The moon is a false friend ! Oh ! stars they too !
No moon - vanishes from the sky
New moon comes which too is not true !

Waves and tides may touch the shore
Without a pause, evergreen flows
Though they touch shore more and more
The false friendship it always shows !

Even the soul and body are false
False friendship is today's trend
Our world itself false where truth often falls
So, proud to be a great false friend !
