PLASTIC!


Walking out of our houses every day,
There is a new hope.
But whats new about it??
Coz we wish for the same thing every time.
More dopamine…
Caffeine…

A wish for love at first sight,
A hot date every night,

Life insurance, low interest rates,
Delicious food on platinum plates.

A sexy figure, a size-zero waist,
Sugary flavored toothpaste,

Humanity without war and poverty,
A ticket sure to win the lottery,

A two storey house,
A wealthy spouse,

Discussing  politics with a stranger in the train,
Obama is black! So let’s choose Mc Cain!

An apology to a friend, way overdue,
A pistol in your closet, with a bullet or two,

This script called life, it isn’t ours, neither is the screenplay,
But we drown ourselves in the act everyday,

We are so very trivial; we blame things on bad luck,
And that make our reality really sick to its stomach,
Until you wanna throw out, all that you ate,
A dish of disaster, all over your precious platinum plate,

Please stop this now,
And see what you have done,
The person you wanted to be,
Is nowhere near what you have become,
Open your eyes, stop and see,
Fear makes you a jailbird, hope sets you free,
All of us, abuse originality,
All of us, exist in vanity,
All of us, are hard, cold, shiny…
PLASTIC!

Luscious Sealed Lips said...

I'de rather sulk and remain unhappy with not being able to be completely what I am than give all that I have to be somebody else. Yet, time and again I keep falling in the trap. And everytime I fall, it hurts.

Kisses.

Pavitra .... said...

@ freelancer:
Yup! you're absolutely right...

Pavitra .... said...

@ LSL:
Yes, I too have found myself in that place so many times...I guess we all fall into that trap time and again...The fact that we realize it at some point of time and make changes is what counts!

"Life insurance, low interest rates,

U sure u just got out of ur teens?!?

Pavitra .... said...

@ Harsha:
Haha...Yes I have. Thank you so much for your kind words... :)

Harsha said...

U r welcome.. I have reread this post about 5 times but i still dnt understand wat u r asking ppl to do through this post..

it highlights wat wrongs we do.. maybe u can add a bit more on how to be..

or maybe i am missing something here..

Arv said...

hopefully our generation wakes up before its too late...

Pavitra .... said...

@ Harsha:
Well, the gist is that we wish for a whole lot of things....we wish that we get everything without even trying.... we do so many bad deeds...and we still expect life to reward us for it....The key is self-introspection and self-correction....I'll be adding a few lines...to make the picture more clear....Keep an eye out for it :)

Pavitra .... said...

@ Arv:
Yes, I hope so too...But I guess, this change starts with us....

Harsha said...

the keys r right.. i am however curious to knw ur style of putting it forward..

u r ways of expressing is opening a new dimension for me.. though the topics r common among all, there is a different perspective with ur details.. i am liking it.. keep at it.. :)

Pavitra .... said...

@ Harsha:
Thank you so much! Well, I love writing metaphorically...
My posts have a common pattern if you've not noticed..Its never direct... Full of metaphors...
I guess thats why you find it different...
And, I love getting to know everybody's angle on the post...At times, it turns out to be something I never thought of...
Thanks for all the compliments...Keep visiting and keep giving your inputs!

Pri said...

nice!!
this would really rock with some rap music in the background :D

Harsha said...

Well, I am just 3 days old to ur blog.. n so far, i did find ur writing to be metaphorical.. the thing is i have read other blogs too where metaphors r a center piece.. but i found your's to be different.. hope i am making sense..

n u bet i am gonna keep visiting.. n do mention it when u make a change to this post..

Cheers!

Pavitra .... said...

@ Pri:
Haha...Nice idea...
Thank you so much!

Pavitra .... said...

@ Harsha:
Thank you so much...I hope I don't let you down...
I've just made the changes in the post....Hope it helps!

Harsha said...

loved it.. esp. this part:

"We are so very trivial; we blame things on bad luck,
And that make our reality really sick to its stomach,
Until you wanna throw out, all that you ate,
A dish of disaster, all over your precious platinum plate,"

did u write all this just now?!? man, thats too cool.. it takes me eons to come up with just a line like that.. so i stick to story telling.. but this is brilliant.. hats off.. *clapping*

Pavitra .... said...

@ Harsha:

Hi Pavitra...
Well chosen little dreams that we all carry around achingly...
The lines I simply loved:

The person you wanted to be,
Is nowhere near what you have become,
Open your eyes, stop and see,
Fear makes you a jailbird, hope sets you free

Hope really does do wonders and fears can crumble even the impregnable!
It’s amazing how we both seem to be lamenting on our posts about all the things lost in the dizzy pace of modernity!

Also common between us is the love for ‘love’!
Keep flowing those thoughts!:-)
