The Beauty of Man

Poetry is turning out to be a very cathartic medium, I should do this more often.

Set the Mood

The beauty of man is his belief,

For it can wipe away any grief.

Belief can be in an absent God,

Or it can be a human we laud.


The beauty of man is his ability to create,

Whether it be creations of love or those of hate.

Where one makes fire another makes ice,

Before judging one you better think twice.


The beauty of man lies deep in his power,

He may use it for good or the good can turn sour.

All that matters is you notice his plan,

With scrutinizing eyes you must always scan.


The beauty of man can be oh so loud,

Thumping our chests like apes so proud.

Never forget that we are just apes,

Little better than the vine growing grapes.


The beauty of man can rest in his soul,

It can be made of light or as dark as coal.

Perhaps kindness is the solution to either,

But just remember you dethrone neither.


The beauty of man is often his choice,

Spreading good and evil through voice.

Words can be sweet or they can be lies,

Beware the ones surrounded in flies.


The beauty of man is often quite hidden,

Under those by which he's been ridden.

Don’t give your power to evil men,

Lest evil spread ‘round once again.

We Are Great

No matter how hard some would seek to hand their greatness over, to disavow their pride and the credit they so deserve for their strength, I'll be there to put favor back where it belongs. I see your strength, the way you power through every step of life, and I want you to know it is by your own greatness that you thrive. That unending fervor, that zeal you kindle within yourself, that is why you are beautiful and why I love you all so much!

I choose to see and live it all!

Once again, your ending message is the one I heard. The one that counts. Believe in yourself. Follow your own lead. Think and be positive. That's the only way to get through life without letting it bring you down. Life really is wonderful. It just depends on how you want to see it and live it.

@crazymom: I'm happy you enjoyed the music, I always try to pair my poems with an appropriate song. Though it is Satanic gospel, and I don't have any interest in deities, it reflects the energy and message of the poem that I meant it to have.

Thanks, MG, and good to see you in my comments!

I saw you wrote a piece on Kim's health, and it is on my reading list. Perhaps I will get to it tomorrow!

Lucien implies as he squirms away from the hug I offered on your behalf: Let me go!

Hahahaha!

I'm quite flattered you find me to be a beautiful being, Paula, it isn't often enough that I receive such heartwarming compliments from anyone but my girlfriend. You continue to inspire my admiration for yourself as well!

Thanks for reading, and brightening my day!

This is simply AWESOME.....and I agree 100%. Although I realize you mean "Man" as in all of Humanity.....I just want to add that I'm a serious fan of Beautiful MEN! (as long as their beauty shines from inside to out!)

Yours certainly does. Hugs for little Lucien...your precious Angel! Paula
