You are a masterpiece. Full of happiness and peace Your thoughts and beliefs Are what everyone seeks. But another work of art comes along And you feel as if you don’t belong, I must tell you that you are wrong Before you’re too far gone. As you morphed yourself to become like her, And not the person you were Your colors started to blur And your pages started to tear. Your original colors no longer showed And your strokes did not flow No one showed Any interest towards you, not even Van Gogh. Finally, you soon understood That your old colors were good And that you were insecure When you were actually beautiful and pure. My dear, you are a masterpiece. People will judge and critique, But don’t you dare change your physique For you are a masterpiece. E.B

Hi Emily, Well done. This poem captures exactly the way people are. Always dissatisfied with our own lives, thinking others have it better only to discover that we were not so bad off after all. Like the saying goes, "You don't know what you have till you loose it. I like the way you rhymed the last stanza, only in the middle and starting and ending with the same relevant line. Personally I would now have rhymed showed with flow as one is in the present tense and one is in the past tense and so they don't really jibe. keep on keeping on. You have a talent.
