beauty feeds on

the outer appearance

from the skin to the depths

inwards of about an inch or so

that importance alone to


trumps all else

good is an intangible

it just is

true good for long

is incapable of being faked

for one can not be successful

at what one truly is not

the ugly ego is incapable of staying

hidden long

to walk in the footsteps of reality

one must self sell a bill of shallow

empty beliefs

such as appearance is everything

and with beauty all things are possible

the myths are endless

beauty may sometimes aspire to be good

but only for the shallowest

of all possible reasons

to add to the layers of the self believing

myths already there of beauty

where as true good

would never even think to aspire to be


for true good is beauty blind

and substance deep..............

Author's Notes/Comments: 

this poem was inspired by reading fellow post poems poet Muhammad Naveed Ahmed's poem A GOOD WOMAN then moving on to Beautiful as he suggested to compare the study in contrasts hence the title I chose for my said poem on this matter.
