Ramesh T A (28th August 1950 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)
A BEAUTY ONLY GLAMOROUS TO THE CORE!
This world likes only glamorous and dubious
But not the truly beautiful and best one ever!
What a pity glittering things the world believes
But naturally brilliant nobody knows even often!
Is it the nature of the world or the making of time?
It is difficult to believe naturally beautiful not cared
Whereas the artificially decorated has wide reception
And which is why many make up for an image lasting!
The same thing happens to poetry true to its value;
All that is basest in nature are well attracted to all!
But everlasting beauty truthful is rejected at the outset
As if they are the cause for all troubles everywhere!
True things perfect as rarest of rare diamonds are dull
Before the glamorous good for nothing dust of beast!
Beauty and beast are like the two faces of Janus ever
Absorb the attention of all and deceives to oblivion sure!
