~false Beauty~ Poem by Mohammad Akmal Nazir

~false Beauty~

Rating: 2.7

All the pleasant adjectives,
Were hovering
around her,
Each of them wished,
To settle with her forever,
Suddenly a gust of wind came,
And swayed them away
Except one,
It was 'transient'.

Did the gust of wind take her beauty away and only one who truly loved her stayed? Wonderful poem.

This is a great work It explains the concept of life] At a time, it glows but it fades away as time goes on.

Clever title with an ending that explains the false beauty that poens up many variations of thought, short and powerful...regards

Excellent! As the Lord truly said, 'Favour is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.' Beauty such as you've depicted is indeed false, though fair, since it is so fleeting; what we desire then is true beauty, that is more than 'skin-deep, ' nor fades with age, but grows ever more attractive like a good wine. Then again, as the Lord says, '...let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us....'
