    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.

    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.

    loved it

    all the best and take care
