thoughts, poetry, life as it is…

anti-vanity

Leave a comment

no matter illusion
our vane-ness pretends
of beauty, perhaps to convince us,
we all turn to toads
further on down the road,
never mind that we once were thought princes!

so better to choose
the insane-ness to end
since truth be known, beauty is fallow.
unless there be grace
‘neath the lines time has traced
on our faces, we wade in the shallows.
