The False Beauty

Custom User Avatar
More by this author
Beauty

Portrayed in this world

is false

Cold and impersonal

Wrong

Sinister and manipulating

No longer beauty.



Real beauty

as seen with the eyes of nature

Is fresh

Full of life and fragrance

and true

Giving hope to the young

something to look back on.



Sadness

I feel towards those

those who feel compelled

Compelled to be

False

Cold

Impersonal

Wrong

Sinister

Manipulating

and no longer truly beautiful.

Thank you! I find it better to just get my point across instead of just dancing around it and giving hints. It is just easier.
