Ode to Beauty – A Poem

No comments :
 
By:  Ali S. 


A view so pleasant, no deceit so true    
Evilness hides beneath its outer glow   
Blinded by a lie, which may lead for a person to rue    
Impossible to see at first, impossible to know   
The love of the beauty of complexion   
Is the true evil and painstaking reflection   
Through the darkness hidden beneath the lie of perfection   
Jealousy and spite are brought to surface   
With every evil deed hidden by appearance 
When evil is rooted beneath the beauty of the skin 
A soul as dark as sin 
Those with true beauty, aren’t those with looks so bold 
But those whose soul is held by kindness   
Whose hearts are pure as gold    
Then outer beauty grows lifeless 
As internal beauty's good wins over the ugliness of its counterpart.
