POETRY

BEAUTY.

I wish I had a dimple,
but I love my smile, it’s unique and simple.
I’m wonderfully made, different from all people;
all the thoughts against my being have gone cripple.

Some say, ‘I am so fat.’
Others say ‘I want a Tommy so flat.’
Do you know that true beauty emerges from the heart?
and is not at all in all that?

To be in shape we go for workouts,
But to cultivate good characters we don’t from our negative attitude walkout.
We store up grudges in our hearts for months,
But a little pint of fat in our bodies we want to get rid of.

Proverbs 11:22 says
“As a jewel of gold in a swine’s snout,
So is a fair woman without discretion.”
Let’s not focus all attention on physical beauty,
And then put aside our life’s duty.

  1. “To be in shape we go for workouts,

    some people neither work out nor walkout…lols

    And I like the part were we stop wishing to become someone else and start appreciating and accepting ourselves as unique personalities

    Nice piece
