I think it takes most of us almost a lifetime to realize that beauty comes from within not things or processes done to the external self. Thanks for the smiles today, they were much needed.

Great poem i love it :)

Very strong message in this write. The beauty should be found within, instead of on the outside. I think we do realize this as we grow older. Well written. (:

Growing Up Without a Clue
^Never had a perfect shape
Always wanted curly hair
Feet were just way too big
Complexion oh so fair^
Good rhythm and flow!
We seem to be obsessed as a society about our looks and we never seem to be happy with them.
^Freckles ran across my nose
Got green eyes instead of blue
Always clumsy, couldn't dance
Growing up without a clue^
Still keeping with the good rhythm and flow here. The visual is funny and cute!
^Wished to look like my sisters
Uncomfortable in my skin
Had breasts that were too heavy
How could a girl ever win^
This is something so many people can relate to wanting to look like someone else and being uncomfortable in your own skin.
^Took half a century to see
it doesn't matter if your thin
Guess somethings come with age
Like seeing beauty from within^
Great ending with the words of wisdom that come with age.
Nice job on the poem. Cute, funny and relatable!

Awesome poem. Something to make you smile and learn. Deep message expressed in a very smooth flow. Something that everybody could relate to.
Though majority of the people would have heard of this message but the simplicity with which you presented it, they all could relate to it more now.
all the best and take care
