Vanity vs. Personality


Vanity
Beauty
Divine of thee
With those
Eyes of the sea
Golden tresses soft and lovely
Copper skin glowing so vibrantly
And angel to be seen in the
Eyes of envy
But her mouth froths of distaste
That nose turns up in haste
To those who are not to date
But appearances fade
With disgust and age
Only a nasty persona
To acquaint
Lonely she must wait
To fulfill her only fate

    This poem was worded amazingly! The imagery was very clear, and it really added to the idea you convey... Vanity vs Personality is a clever title too. I see that many times vanity becomes a prominent trait in those who have it, getting consumed and snobby. Great job! : 3 (Report) Reply

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
