Beautiful or Handsome

Handsome man can win queen’s heart
As there lies wisdom with brilliance as an art
Same way beautiful womanhood can play impossible
The war can be won with simple but beautiful smile

History is witness
That speaks a lot about beautiful face
Many queens have sacrificed for the cause
Now let us not restrict honor and simply pose

The pointer is good
But it must be understood
From broad angle
That it can invite many more troubles

It is not easy to defend
Or for right signal to send
It has its limitations
Else there is chance for strained relation

It has an advantage
To come off successfully and manage
The beauty plays impressive role
Comes off with dedication to surprise call

In modern age too beauty is prayed
Many people may be dismayed
Yet it remains no strange
One must think positively and manage

You can not act as an ordinary
It is also necessary
Ti remain in lime light
As well as to continue the fight

    I really enjoyed this philosphical piece, though several of your comparisons give me pause. At the beginning you seem to be stating that we are fixated on surfaces, making our judgements. Then it seems to say we give our surfaces their solidity intentionally, with the goal of hiding darkness. Lastly, you turn to things we have lost, or will lose, to imagination itself and end with emptiness. I think though, you miss the point that we are striving for a perfection we can never reach, an idea of happiness. And, perhaps, that is all the meaning and reason we need.
