Inside Out–a Poem

Inside Out

A wizened old lady

Once looked at me

And proceeded to say

What my frivolous

Youth could not see

Your taut skin

Resembles peaches and cream

Your shinning beauty

Will make men’s eyes gleam

Enjoy these gifts

For they are not permanent

And as the years pass

You will experience

Diminishing complements

Take comfort my dear

The tarnishing of beauty

Will make evidently clear

That “what” exists within

Signifies your true nature

With this knowledge,

Enjoy the rest of your future

    This reminds me of a poem by Herrik called ‘to the virgins to make much of time’ Though it’s very differently written but similar in the theme.

    And that’s why beauty comes from within right? It’s a wonderful poem.

      That’s right! Then again there are some who are beautiful on the outside and down right grotesque within. You are beautiful on the inside and out,;hence your positive interpretation of the poem. Thanks for your comments 🙂
