Beauty


Beauty, what a sight to hold
Yet your heart is so cold

Beauty the greatest treasure
But you, you have no measure

Beauty breaks, Beauty heals
But for your heart ill always feel

Beauty attracts with lust
Your heart tainted turns to dust

Beauty a gift or curse?
You decide better or worse

Beauty a gift tainted
All men surely hated
