    Dear Lord,

    Where has beautiful gone?
    Is she hiding?
    Because I'm searching aimlessly
    And all I see is ugly
    Every minute of everyday
    She walks beside me and
    follows me like a shadow
    and trails behind me like
    a little lost puppy

    "Beautiful, where are
    you?"I call out
    But there is no reply
    An mere silence
    "Beautiful, where are
    you?"I call out
    But there is no reply
    A blank wall stares back at me
    "BEAUTIFUL! WHERE ARE YOU!?"
    Its useless because
    Beautiful no longer exists
    Instead, she has been
    replaced by ugly

    The world is ridden with
    Ugly and Beautiful has
    vanished off of the face
    of the earth
    and until she reappears
    everyone will continue to suffer

    I pray that you will show
    me Beautiful because we
    are suffering, though we
    hide behind our cloaks and
    psychological masks, we
    are suffering.
    Lord...please help us.

    This is a very insightful piece. Using your third eye...your mind's eye, you see that there is something missing in the world...the beauty of the world.

    :thanks: for sharing your insight with us.

    Beauty is everywhere, it just have to be tapped into...
    beauty has always started "within"....then everything in it's realm becomes beautiful.
    I love the piece poet...keep pushing the pen.
