Ugly Beauties Poem by Soran M. H

Ugly Beauties

Rating: 5.0

All the things of this world
are beautiful
if they don’t make themselves ugly
like people.

Crazy incontinent waves
did not respect the sea when
they destroyed
the honest canopy of love.

Drops of rain
did not fulfill the clouds when
they deleted the words
in the dictionary of trust.

Oh! how bitter were
those apples which fell from
the ugly beauty’s trees and
putrefied the garden.

Sorrowfully the sun sat
no longer listening
to the abusive words
of the scentless blossoms
that interrupted him
and threw stones at him.

Glasses were full of the
wine of dishonesty
when the silver moon
lighted on the table of the night.

Oh! they were frantic
who could not stop the sun
from its journey, they who
ignorantly, rudely, proudly
Walk the earth
Then late, late
Calm down in its depth.

Spring has not yet come
roses withered –
beauties that were so ugly inside
that the fell
not once could they hold or
shake the hand
of tranquility.

All things are beautiful
in this universe
if they don’t make themselves ugly
like people.

There is good and bad in everyone all lives are full of regrets, I look around and see more good in people than bad. For even the bad can seek and find redemption.
