Beautiful short poem

Photo by Art Comments

What is beauty?

Plucked eyebrows and rosy cheeks,
Thin waist, from fasting for weeks,
Breasts and buttocks, gutted and grown
By dishonest silicone?

Is this beauty?

Fifty-dollar low-cut shirts,
Thirty-dollar thigh-length skirts,
Stick a needle in your ears,
Gold and jewels to impress your peers?

Is this beauty?

A sexy smile and fluttering eyes,
A demure demeanour to pick up guys?
Flirty, playful in the streets,
To get some stud under your sheets?

Is this beauty?!

Or…

Friendly, honest, just and fair,
Loyal, generous, always there,
A voice that is a welcome sound,
Spreading laughter all around.

When someone comes with crippling fears,
You reassure them, dry their tears.
The care, the kindness that you give,
For some it is a reason to live.

Is this beauty?

My muse is like an excitable dog. It catches sight of totally random things and starts yapping and running around and wagging its tail and WILL NOT STOP until I write a poem about it.My poetry is sometimes based on personal experience and sometimes on other things. Aside from that, I enjoy video games (My favourite game series is Mass Effect) and the popular television show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

I love how this shows what society today says is beauty compared to what should actually be stated as beauty. This was a lovely read.
