A mirage lurking forever...or a question equally brash?
Frayed & hackneyed with time...the answer still at large
But this query still stands bravely….answerable, free of charge!
Some beat around the bush…some may speak their mind
The answers are black n' white…truth n’ deceit combined
Beauty has typically stood for… the fairer sex’s grace
Their flawlessly fair complexion… some exquisitely chiseled face
How many care to admit… that they look beneath the skin??
How many are brave enough to… look for that guy within???
My fellow writers have also…beautifully elaborated on this theme
Woven words in phrases and made their verses gleam!
Beauty could be only shallow or a trait rarely seen
This is what my version of “real beauty” has been....
Beauty lies in all of us... we all are creatures of charm,
For some its the face which glows; for others, their feelings warm
When we clutched mother's arm, when we first trotted behind Dad,
They thought we are beautiful...Oh! how we made them glad!
Our teacher's smile was lovely, so was the girl next door
The first bike we rode was great and our first winning score...
We realized how ravishing grand mom is, even when old n' worn...
We saw charm in the eyes of love, when we were lovelorn.
But what we never stopped to think, is that in everyday life...
We have beautifully touched others n' taken away their strife!
There was beauty when we saved that pup, there was beauty in the pain
When we lied to save a pal, when we celebrated in cold rain
We were beautiful when we brought a smile, on that old beggar's face
We were captivating when we, on purpose lost in a critical race
We are all so beautiful to our Mother nature, of course
When we do our duty towards saving, her finite resource
We are beautiful when we fight, tooth n' nail for a cause...
We are beautiful when we work with a meaningful purpose.
That tear shed for someone else....that extra mile walked
Our beauty has often goaded an inner strength, well-stocked
No one is ugly, dear friends...no one is born a thief
We are beautiful if we think so, it is all about belief....
Something unforgettable, a happiness that lingers among life's plenty
What makes it is a joy forever.... it is that 'thing' about beauty!!
