PAWNS

Bhavya Kaundal

It started with flyers and few shops
Buy this and you will get this free.
Started with playing monopoly as a kid
And later became a pawn
which was being moved by the internet,
the advertisers and companies that controlled it.
Were we the pawns?
Or was it an excuse to tell our mind?
We do know but we still continue.
More options everywhere
But still we have nothing to wear.
More options everywhere
But still no right match
More options everywhere
But still never satisfied.
More options everywhere
But still alone.
The more we buy the more we feel like gold.
The more we see the more we take
Easing pain with alcohol
A validation with likes
And swipes became life.
Escapism has gotten hold
So, we let ourselves become the pawns
And blame the world for creating more.
