Her Beautiful Flaws
Written by Adam M. Snow

Upon her reflection, I see her stare
at an image looking there.
An image she saw, she saw defected
- a beauty not sought, but rejected.
In her ears, many names so crude
like w***e, ugly and all that is rude.
She believes the voices and what the voices said;
the torment that filled this dame with dread.
She ponders and wonder all her flaws,
all her pores and her odd shaped jaw.
The beauty she lusts she did not see,
she envies the beauty that man decree.
With scars upon scars, her face she re-sculpted,
her desired beauty she had exalted.
An angel, she dreamt herself to be;
but merely a monster the world now sees.
Upon her reflection, I see her stare
at an image looking there.
An image she saw, she saw defected
- a beauty no longer, but a soul rejected.

Great piece, enjoyed the flow and inspirations - ode to the mystique of the eyes beholden--woman. Beauty is certainly more than what is without.

The rhyme and pentameter of this write could definitely find itself in a song, but you probably already knew that. Again, great write.

wow, very powerful and sad, was almost waiting for you to say what you saw in her. Almost tragic in a way. Very good job.

Wow! I'm impressed by the rhyme scheme, it's hard not to feel trapped in a rhyming pattern for me, but you were able to control the rhyme without it restricting you. Great vocabulary and great work!

It is nice when a male acknowledges some of what makes being female a trial in the world.
Thank you for sharing your work. Nicely done.

It has been stresed that inner beauty is more important over than what is readily apparent but our society is showing otherwise. Unfortunately, the society could influence on how we perceive ourselves and sometimes if we are not strong enough, we lose our confidence. Beautiful piece
