How to define that which is poisoned by society

How to define that which is poisoned by society

A Poem by SpokenWord
"

This poem was inspired by Liza the Lioness

"





























is beauty a by product
of the clothes that adorn a woman
from the wickedly tight
to the obviously too short
can I measure it 
by the amount of make up she wears
painted Queen or painted clown to be
is Maybelline the yard stick
that a man gives a perfect 10 too
or does it rest between the roundness
of her breast or the valley between her knees
is it her sex that appeals 
or is it her surrender to man's needs
that appeases?

If beauty is in the eye of the beholder
then what does that say about women
and what does it say about me?

Is beauty only seen or can it be felt as well
can I hear it if I listen real closely
or see it if I was blind to it
does beauty have a scent that
I can smell, bottle and sell
if I touch it will I only feel skin
and if I lick it will it taste like salt
mixed with perfume and make up
can beauty be more than skin deep.. Please~

What exactly is beauty
and who are the beholders
what makes one beautiful and another ugly?

Truth be told
perfect beauty is a fairy tale
told by horny men with hard pricks
a measuring stick to control women
enslave them into an image
break their will when they can't live up to it
make women needy for his approval to feel validated
her entire ego rests on it
pop her bubble by telling her she is ugly
and break her knees making her humble
that kind of beauty is a curse
for anyone who gives into it
which is most of us

Our spirit knows true beauty
it lives inside us
visually we are blind to it
what my eyes sees as beautiful
my soul sees as ordinary
for beauty is spiritual not visual

fall in love with her flesh and be disappointed

fall in love with her soul and
experience bliss for a lifetime

In many ways Liza has opened my eyes to the danger of what we call Beauty.

I like this conviction. I like the way you set us up then give us the truth of beauty and what is truly beautiful. Great teaching moment with passion as the instrument

Well beautiful , truth so well said . Men and women buy into this fallacy of the outside . What is outside are mere adornments .

A funny, facinating poem that explores and ridicules the beauty industry and our own preconceptions. A wonderful taunt, with with an eroticism that comes from the mind as much as the dicriptions. Wonderful assault. Wonderful theme. Wonderful poem.

Awesome tribute to beauty and deceit. Lust is always short lived. Real love is loving the soul and beauty within. This never ages, and is the true make up of beauty. Society has perverted the definition of what a woman needs to be. Awesome work!!! xo
