Painted and beautiful, covering up the beams,
Stands a wall,
All coated and clean.
People observe,
Awing at the beauty emanated,
But never see what’s behind the wall.
Behind the wall, is a steel beam,
Holding the wall up so it can be seen,
But no one compliments that beam,
When it is the one holding up everything.
Holding up the beauty, and the space,
For it is the one who holds true beauty,
Showing the support for another.

I absolutely love this poem! I tagged it as one of my favorites! I think it means a lot of things, and its left up to the reader to decide what it means to them. Nice work!

Love this :D, though I can't really explain why. It just connects with a buncha stuff I guess, and is like my thoughts but in cohesive sentences instead of the mumbo jumble inside my head :)
