Less is more

Yes, I am a bookmark that used to be fashionable. Flashy inspiration quotes of great people went to print on my physical structure. Instead, I was the one who reminded of the great scholars’ thoughts.

Where then this web mammoth came, my renown became diminished. Leaving people messed up with excessive information. Books and I are best friends that we both went, decreased as when holding, feeling and reading disappeared while sucked into a screen.

Now I’m a freebie where on buying a book, you get me as a natural endowment.

This mammoth internet has run wild he has gulped the books, the bookmark feature & readers. I’ve heard boys stab us in the face when one is planning to buy a book the other interferes no need to buy. You can read online. However, I heard about drying clothes online from when the books started to get stringed — left me bewildered.

Even though a book accompanies me, people no more take me seriously. They throw it to the younger monsters in the house on screwing me up by making a bird or their headbands or Yucks! Their tongue cleaner. Miserable.
Rather than my place, other things move forward in my role. Clothes clamps, ice cream sticks or condoms with a bow. Revolting.

I’m expiring, still, let it be in honor.

You can use me as a recycled scale to say goodbye to these plastic environmental monsters. Lodge a couple of us on your dirty patch on the wall will be called a designer wall. Or, stick me to the sides of your shoes each time you change & choose a new design, making other people think about your never-ending shoe collection.



Here you can publish stories and feelings about anything; relationship, nature, sexuality, life and many more from real and honest perspective. Our motto: Write just the way you are. It’s okay to be imperfect. Don’t worry to be different. We all respect your opinion.
