Can Beauty Be Defined? - Poem by Stacey Gallegos

What is beauty?
Is it trustworthy?
Is it fair,
or is it deceiving?
Is it compassionate,
or is it cruel?
Is it misery,
or is it pleasure without measures?
Or joy,
from a boy with a toy?
Is it abnormal,
or does it come in all - with a call?
Is beauty condemmed with a curse,
or is it fortuitous?
Is it really as dangerous as they claim it to be?
Is it truly contagious?
Does it even matter?
