A World Full Of Fake Smiles! Poem by Abhishek Tiwari

A World Full Of Fake Smiles!

Rating: 4.7


</></></>Today I went to a city side,
What a fake world with
such a fake smile..! !
I couldn't talk to people
I love, and Laughed with people I didnt like..
Today I went to a city side..
what a misery!
I bought a t-shirt worth nothing,
With 90% discount,
and exclaimed with haughty pride..! !
I talked to people far off,
but could not recognize the one who lives beside..
This was the taste of city side..
I crossed the pingy poo of roads
and went to eat and get some life..
I emptied my wallet, its every penny,
but I am still hungry,
This, oh God! I cannot hide...!
I billed and smiled,
a fake smile..to the people there inside..
and said good bye to the city side..!
This was the taste of city side! !

A painful, depressing reality of today's materialistic world where people are living pretentious lives which holds no deep meaning, everybody aloof and distant from others. Must say, good depiction of the various states...

I loved the immediacy and the feeling of being right there at your side as you went through the city streets- - that is talent, my friend

That is called diplomacy. Smiling while you are hurting is indeed going with the flow. What a fake! A nice poem. I enjoyed it very much. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON.
