Life's Beauty Is Lost Poem by Lyn Paul

Life's Beauty Is Lost

Rating: 5.0


The Colour of my skin, is just a colour
The Religion I believe, Is only My belief
The money that I have, Is at my own cost
The freedom I am given is not always my choice
The love that I receive, Is often not enough
The love I can give is the amount that I choose to give
The food that I eat is often only temptations
The food that I need, may not be a choice
The air that I breathe, allows me to stay alive
The beauty of life is not understood
The importance of living is more than the speed of life
Nothing is natural
Beauty is lost
Words no longer meaningful
What we want
What we truly need
Is just the Beauty of Living

Beautiful poem from your pen. This poem reflects in many angles. Many things may not be our choice. Yet, there may be something of our choice, or in other way we have to make some choice to make our life beautiful.....Very true said in few lines.... What we want What we truly need Is just the Beauty of Living Loved the way you presented it.
