Beauty revealed from the depths of evil

With the curtains drawn back
and with eyes ripped open
It could be mistaken as attack
humanity seems to assume only the worst

Experiences bitter, ugly and perhaps even harsh
the reality seeming fatal, horrific and painful
But to look at it through the eyes of what’s presumed predictable
to look at it using the set life rules, only the ugly can be noticed

Forgiving the sins, forgiving what may have harmed
appreciate the consequences, the effect
Had this hurricane never occurred,
this rainbow would have never followed

Appreciate the dark clouds because underneath them could be sunlight
welcome the devil because following him may be an angel
If the devil was to steer you into hell,
surely the angel would return you to heaven

Don’t look on the ugly with closed views,
setting principles can only lead you to receiving what is expected
Use your optimism, use your minds depths to differ and waver in decisions
As meanings can be more then they seem to appear as

Although you may prefer the more attractive option
in truth that could be the worst one in choice
Not only the effects of the ugly maybe be better
but perhaps the reasons and lessons behind it could be far more glorious

If you were to never have been heartbroken,
would you know how to appreciate true love?
Would you know not to seek it but to find it?
what would you have learnt and could you know what happiness is?

There shouldn’t be such thing as labelling
there shouldn’t be expectations
But only open minds and open hearts
beauty can be found in anyone or anything, possibilities are endless

Beautifulness may not always appear just as is perceived it should do
learn to never know what to expect and let surprises be welcome
Appreciating the hideous in life can not only make you a beautiful person
but it can also help you concur a beautiful lifetime

Eventually anyone with a heart of happiness succumbs to the acquired taste
a taste which is named as; Ugly
Eventually everyone falls in love with it
but once loved doesn’t mean ever understood

    Interesting and thought provoking well done! Beauty comes from lessons learned, experiences thought out, whether precieved as good or bad originally its what we take from them that truly teaches us the beauty within. A Fave!:)Pat

    That´s like looking for the Ying quality of Life…and not to be installed in the Yang as a symbol of light, strong, sound, stable…..reasoned….
    I love your words…they are nurturing and perfect in themselves.

  • Yes, I’m glad you understand what I was trying to say. Thank you very much :-)
