Beauty Found Within

Beauty Found Within

What are you talking about that i am nobody.
I traveled deep and far
I came back with the ability
to see all the beauty with in
Do not tell me I am ugly because I sin
I found myself while living in the life I deny
trapped in a pit, never did i think I would win

Give me a chance to explain myself
I destroyed all the beauty i once knew
Pushed it deep behind a wall rejecting reality
Living as a lost soul feeding myself on the weak
Roaming all alone
Spiting on this world, torching  my own will to love
God I put you to a side
That is still a book I am working on
The knowledge i once new, i through it all away
Living like a fool
to the worlds destructive ways
Trying to balance  out my life
I closed the doors to receive the perception of every way
taking a deep look I fell to my knees
opening the door to help the ones in need

God it makes me so mad to know
we always put the worlds blame on you
The death of the world is just another beauty
to the life we will have on the other side
The evil we have with in, is just a wake up call
To receive the things we choose not see
blinded by the truth that does not add up at all

Inner beauty buried by my own rage
I felt so  trapped,  somewhere inside
Crying to let her  out
I suffocate her  with my tongue 
Chanting for me to open my mouth
Now I take an oath to never betray her again.
nor  lock her  in the abyss inside of me
My beauty now overpowers the bite off the apple.
In which was taken from  us in the beginning of all  time

A small simple reminder,
That will sooner or later surface the outside
never in my wildest dreams did i imagined 
my beauty would  exposed for all to see
Now that i am strong i will stand up for myself
With God given gift I will also stand up for others
With my  beauty that has bloomed like a rose
I will take that beauty and share for all to see
I will walk where my senses  are needed  
you will follow just to get to know me.
With the reminder so simple as can be
To look, to feel, to perform, is a wake call upon self image
I found my  beauty which is far more dangerous than vanity
the VALUES of life are the beauty given to me : )

////A simple reminder contest ////

    Echo's of 'Amazing Grace', and sounds just as sweet, You certainly have your own way of expressing yourself Dark One or should I call you Evil One after that cooking explanation and scary laugh. Still undecided lol. Take care, Regards Richard

    also, P.D. the reason i fibbed about my age was because i felt way too young to be here on the soup, but its still super young.haha. i wanted other poets to consider talking to me before knowing my age and chosing not to speak if they knew before.(: have a great night my friend. take care. ~Always&Forever

    about your mother, thats really sweet then, that she stayed for just a small moment only for you.her grandson, is he your son,or ur sis.i guess i shouldn't ask.but that is very sorry,if my write tormented you at the end of my narrative.but i feel like its real to me, like i would know how it feels in such a way that it came naturally when writing it.hey, P.D. i hope your mother is well where ever she is, and shes lucky, to know what you look like,i mean, you are her child.-always

    Such an introspective poem you have here PD :) & you sure succeeded in my book, reminding us of the beauty inside us-- :) I really enjoyed this poem of yours, it's very straight to the point yet written in a way that doesn't make you forget so easily--just one typo for the word "through"--I think you meant "threw" for that :) Best of luck in the contest PD, I'm sure this will do well :)

    this was very intense and very enjoyable p.d. i am learning a lot about you.

    Brilliant piece of writing. You have beautifully penned a Great Poem my friend. It’s a great theme, on which you have sketched a very lovely poem with beauty coming out right from the depths of your heart. My good wishes for your contest which I hope it would top up. And many thanks for your lovely and precious comments on Patrodoot's part 11. Love and best wishes......Ravindra..... Poet D.

    I hope your ending yo your incomplete poem is revealed to you by the God you so love as it reads as divinely inspired. May more inspiration come your way. Can't help but note your poems are popular and with merit. Susan, always

    Good roundabout, each with their own inner beauty, to struggle with...

  1. Date: 5/17/2010 1:27:00 PM

    So awesome a write, PD! Oh WOW! I can follow your heart and thought process through which you come to profound awareness. You might want to review only for the sake of typos. You wrote from your heart and didn't pay attention to such details. I understand very well. For ex. 2nd stanza, line 9, I think you meant to say, "the knowledge I once knew, I threw it all away..." I am looking forward to read the complete work. Thanks for sharing and thank you for your nice comments on mine. Caroline.

    The beauty of good sholders the bad that we invented, untill we can face that fact that's good. That is the beauty that we so desperately search for. Agape, Moses

    Thnx for leaving comments for me, P.D. I've asked Audrey to forward a few poems for me to read, enjoy and comment back...yours is one of those I chose...later, Jimmy

    a true beauty trapped inside always has something so majestic along with it. this is interesting. how you talk about not all sinful people are ugly, becasue many are beautiful beyond words. and this is true. i especially like your stanza where you speak of how others think god does everything for us, and plans death, or life.or a healing for medicine.i disagree with all of it.i believe that he created this world.for us to figure out on our own in our own way,by growing&discovering-always
