Two Poems by Angel Edwards


  



All in your Mind

 

 In this attic

 

     dreams

 

     trespass

     intrude 

 

     they hide

     elude.

 

 

 In this attic

    

     dreams

 

     collapse

     collide

 

     with the past

 

     protrude.


 

   In this attic

     

     dreams.



Beauty problems

 

The problem with people who are beautiful considered beautiful


they use that standard

to measure every human being

all

We all know

"beauty is

in the eye of the beholder"

the perception of the perceiver

entirely an opinion

 

often misleading as

to

the character of an individual

because someone is good looking does not mean

that they are

good acting

good hearted or

good anything

other than good luck

being born with the preferred look of the moment

appeasing to the eyes of the viewers gaze.


 

Standards of beauty change throughout the history of the world 

what once was considered unattractive and undesirable an appearance

is later on deemed the most desired look.

 

Cast an eye to history

tell me

which of these acclaimed BEAUTYS which you may have googled

do you think would meet your standards of beauty

the unreachable standards of modern day beauty with all the enhancements created

Present

totally artificial presence

false representation of ourselves

which does not meet reality or real life

The myth of beauty

the lion beauty

anyone who is loved becomes beautiful

It is magic
