beauty and greed

Updated on August 6, 2011

beauty and greed

Look at her,her face has no scar, if she is put in the battlefield,her innocent grin can stop the war.

She smiles as she combs her long blond hair,unaware of the fact that we are getting old with the speed of the running mare.

She considers herself the queen of the kingdom of beauty,she is drinking the vanity like the tutti-frutti.

She wants money like thirsty wants water,dogs are howling when moon is in quarter.They are warning the beautiful women,yes they are making the omen.

She is now in her sixties and suffer from leprosy,her mind is clouded and she cannot remember who was she.

She lost her innocence when she was swayed by greed,she is now craving for death but is not yet freed.

Greed is the poison that smells like perfume,for the one who use it god has no room........

      Thanks carolinemd for dropping by.Your comment matters a lot to me,i read your profile and i know that you have been through tough times,i cannot bring back the thing you lost but can share your sufferings and I also meditate, i hope that some day I will enter the state of 'samadhi' through it,which is believed to be the ultimate state and say goodbye to all the sufferings.

      We shall all experience the loss of our youth, the fading of what we perceive of as beauty...it is too bad that this character did not realize soon enough..and, now; an older woman without her youth and lovliness...and nothing else to ease her into aging. Very sad. We'll all be there...just a matter of time. Very beautiful and interesting.
