Naked Beauty

Naked Beauty

A Poem by Lily Victoria
"

August 12, 2015

"
The naked bareness of a human face beholds a supernatural beauty that this whole universe has desired to see.
One glance can obliterate the strength of a thousand stars,
And yet not one of them are as beautiful.

At least,
Until an unskilled artist comes in,
With an eraser and brush in hand..
"Lets cover what was never meant to be hidden
and make you seem more beautiful...."

As if the creator had no idea what He was doing in the first place.

A beautiful master piece is soon rearranged
By an array of lies that say you're somehow not good enough,
And you believe it.

Until the painting eventually turns grey
And every spectrum of vibrance has vanished,
You are left with red and black,
Streaming down your face.
Like fresh tar dripping off the side of its container.

The beauty still lies beneath,
But a veil remains content in concealing that mystery.

As soon as the night comes,
The veil is washed off
and nakedness is revealed once again.

Pure extravagance is a necessity among those who truly want to live,
So why should one hide their natural beauty?

In a Fake,
Materialistic
World,
beautiful simplicity is a rare gem
and I want to fully discover it.

This is perfect. I've always been a firm believer that make-up is completely unnecessary as natural beauty fully surpasses anything that can be created with the stroke of a brush, no matter how talented the hand. Seems like everybody is so obsessed with being perfect these days that nobody realizes that their natural self is the most perfect form attainable. It's good to see someone who holds true to these values. Don't give in to the lies and always be yourself. This is very well written and your descriptors do a very good job of painting a picture in my mind as I read this.
