    dotsWhat is Beauty?dots
    -------------------------------------------


    Who is to say what beauty is...

    Is it in a magazine,
    Is it owned by an expensive clothing store,
    Is it skin deep, does it go further?

    Who is to say

    Am i beautiful
    Are you

    Just because I have spots am I not beautiful,
    Just because you are a size above the average are you not beautiful..

    Everyone is different,
    What is beautiful to you may not be beautiful to me,
    But who is right?

    The answer is no one.

    We all see beauty differently,
    This is what makes it exciting,
    We all have someone that thinks we're beautiful.

    Yet there are still mindless men who think they have the right to judge?!!!
    Why is this...

    What is beauty .... who is to say

      The definition and nature of beauty has always fascinated me. I hate how the media says that if you're over 8 stones (since you're a Brit) or whatever that you're not beautiful. I also hate that men make women feel like crap if they don't fit into their little package ideals of beauty. It's just not fair that men are judged upon accomplishments, and women are judged upon by their looks.

      this is powerful. Society gives us the basis of beauty in magazines and on TV. The thing I loved the most and agree with so much is that there is not one person who does not have someone out there who thinks they are beautiful. Everyone has some that loves them, therefore they have beauty. There is a match for everyone, and some men, the ones who really don't matter, do not see this.

      i definitely liked the rawness of the definition, ie there isnt one and its a very calming read...it could have been stronger, with maybe imagery or maybe a simile, since beauty is compared to the eyes' view many times, but i loved the serenity of the peace...it helped me calm down. overall, a very good read

      I like how out there this is in form, one of the few where the jagged rythm works. I like this and I have to say you are speaking pure truth here.

      I thought the imagery could be a little better. But i liked it and it's about time someone spoke on this subject. I'm nursing a beauty poem but it's not on elite yet, maybe when I put it on you can check it out.
    The middle lines kind of confused me.
    'Just because you are a size above the average are you not beautiful..' I know what you're saying, but something grammarwise is off. Maybe you could change it to 'Though' instead of 'Just because'... something like that.

      This is very ineteresting...this is something I can appreciate...you might wanna consider reading a piece of mine called (Beauty and Sadness), it's talking about the same subject but from a little different prespective. Good work.
