Plastic lives

                                                      Shining, gleaming

                                                             plastic flowers in a vase

                                                     Vague is the idea of sun for them

                                                    So alien is the rejuvenating water

                                             Vagaries of wind ,an unknown phenomenon

                                                              No smell to boast of

                                                          Their beauty so cosmetic,

                                                            fake and pure imitation

                                                 Not having the pleasure of withering,

                                                            to give birth to new life

                                                              They just stay there

                                                With just their fake beauty, as comfort

                                                      Not knowing what it means to die

                                                       and to be born again and again

                                                         No one plucks it for its beauty

                                                              No one stares it in awe

                                                               Living a life of futility,

                                                     being so soulless and thoughtless
