A flower petal vibrant and smooth beckons your eye

It falls to the floor starting to wither and dry

Further it fails as it browns and decays

Its beauty is flawed but still it proudly displays

Such are we in this world as we enter and leave

Our efforts in vain as we conceal and deceive 

Beauty however is never really to blame

But vanity disguised with beauty as its name

The efforts that are taken are used like a vice

Taking a toll on our bodies the ultimate price

But beauty is not what we see nor is it for show

It is the knowledge with in and what we may know

Being true to your heart letting happiness shine through

This is real beauty unique to only you

We masquarade the false version each day

Not realizing the dangers of this malicious game that we play

Close your eyes and journey within

Does look with a fright or does it give you a grin

This is where your true beauty is stored

Not in the makeup routines we learned when bored

It cannot be achieved from masks and attire

Beauty is being someone to admire

So whether you are flawless or wrinkled and grown

Let your true beauty shine bright and let it to the world be shown.
