Desire for authentic amidst pretentious

In this era of pretentious,

how will I choose the Pearl,

among the numerous lustourus fake one.

 

How will I know if it is authentic,

all look so promising,

shiny, shimmery and beautiful.

 

Or let the circumstance decide,

with filing of tough time,

authenticity of the Pearl.

 

When the original remains as it is,

and fake show their true self,

hidden beneath the shimmery layer.

 

Original Pearl might not be that lustourus,

unlike the fake one,

yet it stays same during tough time.
