A Poem by Caty Boylan

When you're so much more than Beautiful

Everyone feels that pull,

to be just that cool

to look so damn good in that bikini near a pool,

to have that amazing boyfriend

to give their helping hand to lend,

and when you're that Beautiful

and everyone feels that pull,

When you're a leader

Everyone thinks "i gotta beat her."

So so so true! I know that for fact that a beautiful, popular girl will be hated and envied. And that is so sad.

Upon a pedestal, perched there,
to be knocked down by those around her,
who cannot be as Beautiful inside as she is.

elegant in its simplicity

Ahh, really like that last line.

Enjoyed the fact that you not only made beauty come across as a gift, but also as a curse. That idea is well understood.
You wrote this fairly well. I think your diction could be improved...the words you chose for rhyming are "amateurish" in your context. "just that cool....bikini near a pool"
But overall,
Good Job

Sometimes maybe being beautiful is worse than being ugly?
More pressure is more like it ... nice expressive write.
The world has put too much emphasis on being beautiful.. but this is only
learned with time, beauty is really only skin deep.
