Sonnet: This World Goes By Your Externals - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

This world loves seeing me powdered, perfumed!
My face wearing mask; my lips with a ‘smile’!
They respect only the well-attired,
Who speak out phrases/ praises in grand style.

The world wants me to appear always wise,
Promising lots, seldom carrying out things;
They love to hear me utter blatant lies,
To drink more wine and keep exchanging rings!

The world loves seeing me travel by cars,
Driven by chauffeurs, uniformed and smart;
Be sought after by girls and by cine-stars,
And go around the world to every part.

But I just love to be myself always!
Natural, honest, hard-working all my days.
