Plastic Faces

Plastic faces mimic a seductive emptiness
Solitude is a trap that makes us thirsty for attention
Pride feeds on superficial knowledge
While vanity subjugates the eyes
Artificiality is the new trend
And superficiality is the new attire
Nowadays, faces are similar to assembled cars
Plastic ducks desperately seek attention from a shallow multitude
Since individuality and imperfections are the enemies of this society
Everything must be smooth and polished like shining plastic
The store of our patriarchal society sells faces and bodies
Plastic shells please hollow minds
Image is everything, and content is shallow
We should treasure culture like an exquisite gem
Nevertheless, the ordinary flow of banality brutalises everything
The capitalism and exploitation of individuals created this society
Persons are considered soulless numbers without a name
Members of a crowd of anonymous who are just invisible nobodies
Silence is consent and the origin of anguish
Everyone should be responsible for a change
Society should not be based anymore on lookism
The vicious superficiality feeds on ignorance and indifference
Society should erase every kind of discrimination and bigotry
We should empower intellectualism and erudition
Individuality and integrity should not sink in the mud of stupidity
And being poetry ethereal and metaphysical
It feeds arid souls in a desolate reality.
