The Fake Life!

Face, Empty, Woman, Wait, Waiting Time, To Sit, Wall

She was a glamourous young actress at the peak of her career. She had name, fame and money.

Her plastic smile, her chiseled body, her empty followers on social media, the many trophies standing in her living room, all seemed so hollow to her.

Looking at herself in the mirror, a repulsive feeling engulfed her. There was nothing about her that was genuine. Her life was fabricated to project a picture of perfection.

She felt everything about her was a lie.

Disgusted with the fakeness of her persona, in the dark of the night, she disappeared without a word to anyone, in search of her true identity!

Everything about her was a lie….”

Transient Fame!

Ruling the glamour industry

much sought after face

sashaying across the ramp

basking in all the adulation

stardom felt eternal.

Spotlight shifts focus

today, my face  is a mere poster on the wall with graffiti.

Forgotten, as tides of time change.

I try to chase the elusive limelight,

only to realize,

fame is like a sparkler

burning till the light fades

The Decision!

Inspired by Sadje’s What do you see prompt #47

Tears of happiness welled up in Gina’s eyes, as she watched her son being helped onto the stage to receive a prize for his painting. Today his paintings were much sought after, the world over, bringing him fame and money.

Walking back 20 years in time, she recalled the day, her world had shattered when her young son was diagnosed with autism. It took her some time to come out of the shock.  But she did not let fate define her son’s life.

She introduced him to the world of colors. Today, looking at his old sketch book she was glad with her decision.

Glancing at her name on the Forbes most powerful business women in the world, Meg couldn’t be happier. She recalled her earlier life, chained to an abusive husband. Today, she was glad about her decision to break free from the shackles of her marriage and create her own identity.
