Beauty is...

Beauty is...

A Poem by RIch Hilliard

A nice rhymed and metered poem

beauty is... 
Beauty is something that lies beneath the surface 
Something that serves a deeper meaning and purpose 
Although sometimes, beauty is what hurts us 
Out of our control, beauty is what flirts us. 

Beauty is something rarely found 
But it is everywhere; you just need to look around 
Beauty is the quality of pitch and sound 
Not of definite shape; straight, squared or round 

Beauty is something derived from pain 
All of the hard work from the monsters being slain 
Beauty is something that falls as freely as rain 
And if even attempted cannot be tamed. 

Beauty is what you make it out to be 
So make sure you make it out to be free 
Even though it shows itself internally 
Beauty will last forever; an eternity. 

Beauty can't be stopped, only hidden 
It lies everywhere; the divine and the forbidden 
Beauty shines brightly in the forgiven 
So do those a favor and forgive them. 

Beauty is what hatred is not 
Even though some may have forgot 
Beauty is lost but never forgotten 
So the forgetful are never fully rotten. 

Beauty is in the shade and the light 
So beauty can be made to light up the night 
Beauty is the stars twinkling so bright 
Beauty is whatever is right.

An interesting exploration of the meaning of beauty. For me, the best lines have to be:
"Beauty is something derived from pain
All of the hard work from the monsters being slain
Beauty is something that falls as freely as rain
And if even attempted cannot be tamed"
I love those "aha" moments when we truly "see".
I enjoyed reading this, thanks :)

"But it is everywhere; you just need to look around "-I love this line, so true, not many people can really see the beauty that is right in front of them. Great poem.

Just about perfectly written and I like the message, beauty is the positive and I guess each person decides for themselves what the positive is. Nicely done.

Its not easy to make rhyming poetry flow, for the words to sound like they were meant to be together, but you did so nicely here.
