Plainspoken Poetry

So I'm not pretty
Like my ribbon and pearls and flower bedazzled sisters
So I'm plain
Without frills or twirls or swirls of vivid hues 
So I stand out with my arms open wide
Hiding nothing
So I don't have stanzas and rhymes and schemes aplenty

Does that make me unworthy
Does that make me less
Does that make me unattractive at best

Am I not still art

So I tell it like it is

Tell me what is wrong with that?

    I like the comparative analysis in this poem. However, we are all beautiful in our own ways with style. God has blessed each of us with our own unique treasures. It's up to us to groom and display His grace which we all have. Great job! ~Joseph

    Autumn - Nothing is wrong with that in fact I commend you for it - I imagine you are far more beautiful than you give yourself credit for - Just cause you don't "Doll up" doesn't mean your not beautiful hon - God Bless

    lovely verse, just as you are a flower among the bouquet of life. all flowers may not smell as sweet but the colors are brilliant no matter the different perfumes. your friend Lisa
