an extinct species

it is very hard to recognise a true friend

from a formidable crowd of pals surround

it is quite difficult to identify a soulmate

a real extinct species to look around

does definition of true friend still holds good

in this selfish, ungrateful and egoistic world

does the types of those species still available

which are read in books and accidentally heard

or only the materialistic things are our friends

the smart mobile or the dark handsome laptop,

the gorgeous Facebook or the charming WhatsApp

the elegant LED TV or the dashing play station

are these the genuine friends of new generation

yes, it is good to be a techno freak

but the heart inside remains human

we may find the ultimate solace in them

but can they replace a living companion
