Writing Resources from Fifteen Minutes of Fiction
Beauty Lies Too HeavyBeauty lies too heavy upon the frame of those who wear it,
And brings its tragic grief and pain upon the ones who bear it.
In beauty lies deceit of time, with hopeful promise doomed to fail,
And those whose trust is placed therein, soon discover cruel betrayal.
For onward flows time’s rushing stream, blindly drowning beauty’s light,
And leaves its driftwood on the shore, a hollow, dry, decaying blight.
As clanging bells upon a spire, so beauty’s chimes will toll
And often drown amidst their din, true beauty of the soul.
Demanding in its brazen call, it stirs each wandering gaze,
While kindly words and humble hearts will gain no open praise.
And thus I seek no more its charms, its lies and claims untrue,
But offer thanks to God above, for I was born much uglier than you.
