The opposite beauty


All stand still whenever she passes by
The attention she draws is overwhelming
The breath cease
And the wind sings of her beauty.
Oh what an Angelic being she is.

She was the favorite of all guys
She was just the standard
And all were like her protege
Mentoring all that were in her party
Oh what an Angelic being she is.

Surely a part of all men’s daily request to the maker
What a damsel
Spotless
Blameless her appearance speaks
Her steps echoes serenity…

If appearance were the true revelation
The revelation of character.
How deceitful ones appearance could be
The voice of deceit appearance is
Let’s not leave by it.

She was just the opposite of beauty
In her interaction she was
Her character was never in her presence
The inner beauty was missing
No man should be her victim.

A beauty to behold
Yet a devil to abstain from
A calamity to associate with
Oh! The opposite of beauty
Though she was an Angel to behold
Yet a Devil to experience…

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.

If with light head erect I sing,
