Fashionable or not

Per Imp #20001


Fashionable or not,

faith in beauty remains as fickle

as the ever-changing fads it inspires.

After all, fashion is merely another person’s

opinion of how you should look or act.

Find what makes you happy

and ditch the rest.

Outside or inside,

if your reflection isn’t perfection

you’ve got no right to judge.

And what good is a high IQ

to anyone dumb enough to judge others

by the way they look?

Condemnation of another person’s

imperfections has always been

a sign of simpletons.

Per Imp #140001

No matter how richly they’re adorned.

To those unable to see the beauty here,

come back when you mature.

To iterate; it’s overlooking imperfections

which draws us closer to perfection.

Especially since no one honestly relates

to Madison Avenue:

scars are the “Real Thing”.

Our differences make us special: unique.

Not our similarities, but our differences

which perfectly distinguish us.

Hate me for my differences

and you hate yourself.

Condemn me for my imperfections

and you condemn yourself.

Only by accepting me

can you truly accept yourself.

Per Imp #40001

      That is so true, my friend. They say variety is the spice of life.

        I agree; I was just referring to fashion and looks pertaining to the poem only, my friend.

        Thank you, Cathy. Unfortunately, society’s standard often influences individuals and their self-image, and that’s always a negative.

        I don’t see anything changing, though…
        Well, I’m off to bed. Good night and sweet dreams, JW.

        Sadly, you’re probably right, my friend. Good night and sweet dreams to you as well, Pretty Lady.
