Nothing to Please Self

By: Sakshi Singh

In this pretty to eye world
exist fab luxuries.
Elegant dinners in silver dishes,
wardrobes full of jasmine dresses,
satin cases full of pearl collars,
bottles of ecstatic perfumes,
goblets of red grog
and a handsome palace to live in.
Everything just to please others.
But shame! Nothing to adorn this lonely heart.
No happiness, no smile to adorn this vacant face.
Nothing to please self.
