A Bag Of Air! - Poem by veeraiyah subbulakshmi

A bag, that is filled with air,
Once torn, the life is gone.
Liters of cream to polish,
Boxes of moisturizers to nourish,
Bottles of cleansers to clean,
Plates of food to fuel,
Beds of roses to roll,
Napkin of thorns to wipe,
Blanket of sorrow to hide,
Misty prestige to upkeep,
A loaned place to leave,
Faulty titles to own and address,
A bag that is filled with air,
Once torn, the life is gone.
When the plate is too hot,
it will be dropped, as we drop.

    At times we may hold our heads so high that we refuse to see others
    as they are. When we do this we are compared to a bag of air that will
    soon deflate and show what we really are. Very good. (Report) Reply

    expoesed the bag (reputation) once torn all the garbage of one's life is there to see.
    Now that reputation is too hot to be associated with.
    So all contact with that person is dropped. (Report) Reply
