Those beautiful things..

Each time I pick up my phone and scroll around

I see beautiful objects, temptations abound

To make me loosen my purse strings

I am convinced I need shiny new things

In my life, these are things that appeal to me

The world wide web knows my aesthetic, obviously

So the advertisements I see when I browse mindlessly

Are of stuff that caters to my taste and budget, you see

It is hard not to get sucked in to the irresistible lure

Of artistic objects of personal adornment and home decor

Sometimes I just marvel at the sheer creativity

At other times, of buying unnecessary things, I am guilty

Many times I try to assuage that guilt with the thought

That a small business has been supported by things I’ve bought

There is greater representation of cultures varied

In the plethora of goods available indeed

Many things you can personalize and customize

With such attractive options, it’s a buyer’s paradise..


I just got distracted by an instagram store

It has captivating stuff that I simply adore

In this tug of war, let’s see who shall win-

My self-control or the enticing advertising..
