Beautiful baby as you peer into the mirror reflecting your image back to your unseeing eyes blinded by glossy magazines filled with images of unreal and photoshopped people –
How I wish you could see what I see through eyes tinged with age and experience wisdom born of both to know and understand that you as you are right now you are so much more beautiful than they will ever be
Your lovely skin even when an occasional blemish pops through is a natural creamy essence they only obtain through manufactured products and the almighty airbrush effect computers furnish to disguise the true faces of those you see there –
That which you seek to become is but a fantasy created by greed and out of control commercialism set about to make women of all ages feel less than they are as they peer into their mirrored reflection as you are doing right now
Fight back my loves! Do not fall into the trap of money-hungry CEO’s and their advertising cronies who care naught for the care of your skin or the sheen of your hair and eyes rimmed only by those sweet long natural lashes untinged by black goop and glue –
Break the mold and break their bank start your own trend stand up for what’s right and against a standard that can never be met nor achieved in the real and natural world where everyone is born with beauty emanating from within shining through –
Glory, Courage, Anxiety, Failure, Defeat, Delight, Confusion, Calm, Belief, Cleverness, Despair, Honesty, Deceit, Strength Choose an abstract noun from the list above and use that as the title for a poem that contains very short lines and at least one invented word.
With delight and perhaps a touch of cleverness,
This calm poem is written without deceit.
With honesty and courage anxiety a tad,
This author in the belief and without failure,
Shall not relinquish defeat in using all these challengiest words.
With glory, strength and no despair success obtained!
