Am I Beautiful? - Poem by Ramesh T A

Can one say that one is beautiful to others in the world?
One can say so seeing oneself in the mirror, but not to all;
For, one's beauty has to be decided by others as it's acceptable!

If all are crows, how can beauty be decided by what yardstick?
If all are Negros, how can beauty be decided by white or black?
Among white and black peoples, which one can be decided as beautiful?

Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder as beauty differs among all;
For the crow its own baby is golden one among all colours of birds;
Beauty is adequate expression by Nature nothing more and nothing less!

What is lovely to one is beauty whether it is white or black or blue;
What one hates is ugly whether it is white or red or black or blue;
If one says ugly one is beautiful, it shows one's partiality of love!

Even if one loves all equally well, only the one that touches one's
Heart most, one says as beautiful even if all cannot be classified so!
