Beauty


They say beauty is in the eyes of the beholder,
But wouldn’t that make beauty more like a mirror,
All you see is a reflection of what you could be,
For many, what you want to be.

Is there an actual definition of the perfect face?
Dazzling blue eyes, a perfectly rounded nose,
Smooth elegant skin and gently formed body,
The list is endless.

For many, beauty is only skin deep,
I don’t think many people realize that behind the face there is always an inner beauty,
Unfortunately this beauty is imprisoned in day to day life,
Only surfacing when we’re sure no one is watching.

For many girls makeup is the last lifeline,
Cheap imitation that turns you into something your not,
And yet still Inner Beauty is imprisoned,
Desperately fighting a loosing battle.

For once makeup touches your skin it has a hold on you,
Showing you what you could be, want to be,
And then for the rest of your life you find yourself feeding that addiction,
Inner Beauty is free, use it before it disappears.

    Okay, for a teenage boy, that was amazing! You capture exactly what happens when girls my age try makeup or hide themselves with makeup. I'm.....really really surprised you have that depth! (I'm not trying to say I expected you to be stupid, but boys in the U.S. aren't too bright) Really awesome! Perfect! Amazing! There are no other words! ~Yams (Report) Reply

Amongst the flowers I
