Branded

Branded

A Poem by Nwang

Roaming across shopping malls,
We look for certified copies

Among countless trinkets of the world
We opt for something branded.

Joys we get while unboxing new model phones
Happiness we derive while wearing fur coats.

Originality scream the leather jackets
Real time tell branded watches.

Ads they tell us what to buy
Cost is overlooked, logos don't lie

Nature itself has become a tag
Today even love is available in branded bags.

I've never been one to go for brand-new or branded items . . . just show me the nearest garage or rummage sale! *smile* Even tho your poem isn't overtly critical, I definitely get that your message is one of scorn. Thank goodness there's no cell coverage up here becuz I couldn't afford the fancy phones that keep pumping out new versions! I love your commentary.

It sucks to know that nearly everything is labeled with a price tag. It's like no one is able to afford what simple things they want anymore without spending so much...price tags often drive me so crazy...but I guess that's how the world is going to be from now on...

First of all I want to say that your so much of thinking is clearly displayed here. At first I didn't really understand with your starting lines that what actually you wanted to convey. But when I reached the last, your comparison with nature and brands.. and also love ..
yes u r very right with this... people have grown so idiotic that they have turned this world a big market. Even love is purchased. Everyone focuses on outlook.. well, no one understands that beauty is not eternal... feelings are eternal....
so nice to read you... : )

Very good write about today's age of mad consumption and branding.
The way people are after materialism, values and morals coming down is a matter of great concern. Shallow thinking and showcasing have raided the minds of people.We have become mad followers of many branded gods.
Take a bow for the last verse. That is pathetic reality of our society today.
Thank for this very thoughtful write. Keep sharing.
