Beauty Fades

Updated on November 30, 2011
Source

In today's society, women past the age of 40 or even earlier are not seen as attractive anymore. Men on the other hand, seem to get more attractive as they age. This is ridiculous. It should be the same for women. When you love someone, the physical fades away and all you see is how beautiful their heart is inside. You look into their eyes and see their soul which is beautiful. Maybe if we took the time to work on our insides more than worrying about how our outside is changing, we would be able to find some sort of peace and realize that we are still beautiful even with the wrinkles and greying hair.

Beauty Fades

Beauty Fades as time goes by

You can't stop it

Don't even try

Some women go off and

Try to change the hands of time

With nips and tucks and slimmer hips

They get implants to make them belong

Did they even know that they were wrong

In not believing their beauty was true

Despite what society would be drilling in you

Beauty does honestly come from within

Sweet and slow

Deeper than the skin

Wait and think before you go

Get back to what you really know

Are you trying to make your life a show

Everything you want is really in you

There is no need to impress

You'll see that you already knew

Just love yourself to your very best.

      Thanks for commenting Astra. Yes, I know beauty is not only skin deep and we should find our inner beauty. I love your poems. :)

      ....yes I suppose beauty does fade but certainly not on the inside - it's there to stay, like your heartfelt writing, forever !!!!!

      This does to happen to us all eventually. If only they could slow down the aging process. I like the moral about loving yourself! Like Colin says, beauty does not fade on the inside. :)

      Thanks for your comments on my hubs too! Cheers!

      Beauty comes within, just love yourself.

      carolinemd21: Inner beauty transcends wrinkles and hair color. Every one has their preferences, but, as for me, natural beauty is invigorating and refreshing. Your poem beautifully expresses the value of working with the natural flow of life, rather than against it with superficialities.

      Kind regards, Stessily

      I think this sends a wonderful message to ALL women , not just the aging but to the younger women too , it seems we all try so hard to please the opposite sex or our peers , i think everyone should work harder to please themselves and to hell with everyone else ! great write , voted up and awesome! :)

      Jami thank you for reading and the compliment. I would love if people would stop obsessing about aging so much. In the end it's what's inside that counts. :)
