Past Beauty

Rating: 4.3
I'm not the girl I used to be
That girl has gone away.
Where did she go? I do not know,
She simply went astray.
Her life once full of happiness
Of bright and sunny days,
An optimistic outlook
So hopeful, glad and gay.
But now so full of sadness
So gloomy, dark and gray.
No sunshine can break through these walls
Of hopeless, bitter days.
This girl was once so beautiful
Vivacious, proud and tall,
But now she sees just ugliness
In the mirror on my wall.

I like these rhyming lines about the lost beauty of youth. Michael Walker.

If looks are everything then when they are gone, what is left? This is a really good poem cause it's sending an important, clear message in the best way: without saying Here is a lesson to be learnt. It eases into the mind through a relaxing and enjoyable setting-a poem- and makes the readers think about it without putting up their defenses.

I love this poem it says so much about how life and time can change you and how sometimes you just can't recognise the person in the mirror. It speaks volume about life and is a very powerful poem. Reminds me of my poem Ode

The real beauty lies inside......in-depth beauty barely tapped............and what is mirror for.........it is standing there forever portraying ugliness and attractiveness, reflection of what you look like but has it got the ability to measure your inner beauty? a nice poem with a nice reflection of self..................
