I enter that word into the search bar
why is it that all the pictures are of girls,
some half naked,
some wearing enough makeup
to mask them from everyone's eyes?
Yet when I change it to beautiful
I come up with a wide assortment of images.
Should that make any sense?
So many quotes about beauty exist
so many misconceptions
and yet John Constable, possibly hit it spot on
"There is nothing ugly;
I never saw an ugly thing in my life:
for let the form of an object be what it may,
-- light, shade, and perspective will always make it beautiful."
How can anyone deny,
as many frequently do
the beauty of every day things around us?
True, every one admits how beautiful nature is
in the delicate things
and the destructive ones
and the ones that don't belong on this earth.
The seasonal flowers,
constellations that paint the sky
And yet we never think
about the other beautiful things
about the smiles and laughter
that graces peoples' lips,
people volunteering their time
for no personal gain,
a sign forbidding the use of drugs and alcohol
in a school area
Of those two categories,
what would you consider the most beautiful?
And yet we are ensnared
in a world of artificial beauty
left wishing that people would open their eyes
and allow themselves to see the natural beauty
in everything around us
