A Beautiful World

A Beautiful World

A Poem by Glenn Davis
"

I felt like being the devil on a shoulder and this is what happened.

"
This
      Is a beautiful world,
                             and you;
You have potential

So drop that pen
And pick up a pencil
Because God,
    He didn't put enough accent
    On those Baby Blues
Shut your mouth
And apply the rouge
Because it's the   View
Thats important,
Not your  Views

It's not about what you know
It's about knowing,
    How to work what you got
And if you don't have it
You better find a way to get it
    Even if it KILLS YOU!
Drop those books little girl
And pick up the   ISSUE
    Cosmo, Vogue 
They know a thousand ways to fix you.

Wake up and realize
It's all about appearance   
That     sex sells
Not hard work and perseverance.
Put them hips in it,
And     Exxxcell
Without the effort.

Use what you got,
To use them
For what they have.
Hike that skirt 
a little higher.
Give 'em a peek
At that A*s!
     Make 'em fall
     In Love,
But realize Love;
     Thats for Losers
And baby
You are a winner.
    Yeah,  
Beauty is only skin deep,
but thats enough to hide 
any ugly on the inner

See. 
It's a Beautiful world
                  And you,
    You have Potential.

Wow, you really hit the nail in the coffin with this piece. You have taken the misused power of the Media and exposed it in a beautiful attack on vanity!

Beauty is only skin deep,
but thats enough to hide
any ugly on the inner

Its sad but true, your poem is the voice inside the head of little girls all over the world. I love the idea of the skin being the opportunity to hide and ugly inner person. Its rather dynamic and works for several different sides of the spectrum!

Nice work!

It's a very special time in a girl's life when she becomes cognizant of her femininity and desires to be pretty, when she runs from the field of childhood into the arms of near-adulthood and desires to make more of that which she has. The suffocating expectations of society barely allow that girl to be a girl, and she is often forced into being someone that she is not. She wears the smile of a thousand suns on the outside, while inside she slinks in the shadows.

Your poem is a poignant articulation of the narrow-minded, shallow, and impossible expectations of society. The only way that this will ever change is if parents raise their daughters to be strong, independent, individual, articulate, self-starters who don't need to rely on their sexuality to get ahead in life. It's an all too constant cycle that never seems to cease.

Well done!

brilliant.

and there's nothing scarier than seeing ten-year-old girls prancing around the mall in short skirts, high heels, and wearing bright red lipstick.

Oh yes right on... I have long had issues with how the media tries to dictate what is in and causing the young ladies of the world to starve themselves or get plastic surgery, who needs skinny, I love dangerous curves... a very cool and powerful write with a clear cut message.
