She was a celebrity, an icon in her field
Many looked up to her as a young achiever
But she couldn’t bear to see herself in the mirror
Coz, her popularity was based on the biggest farce ever
In her hunger to prove herself and be famous
She had fabricated an exclusive story,
She knew there was only smoke no fire,
Yet, it had taken the journalistic world by storm.
Today while the truth soldiered on to prove its existence,
She was sitting in fancy studios, faking sorrow, clamoring about high handedness
She had been blinded by her thirst for recognition,
But she never knew the price of it was so high
As she wrote about it all in detail, she glanced at her awards,
Ashamed of it, and her very existence
While she wasn’t strong enough to talk about it and witness her fall
As she drifted off to sleep drinking the poison laced tea,
She wished death would cleanse off the shame and set her free

ouch. Genuine at heart but still painful nonetheless – so many today who may actually look back and feel this one day.
Absolutely Rohan. Thanks for stopping by
Oh dear… That’s a tragic tale. Yes, one mustn’t be too blind by passion.
