Beyond The Looks
Beauty is a curious thing.
Truly it can be relative.
And we all want to look good.
To everyone, it's imperative.

On a bench, in Joe's little shed,
lying not too far apart,
were his ax and his switchblade,
having a quiet heart-to-heart.
The poem is really an allegory that teaches children a useful lesson for life.
This is a lovely poem. It's easy read and it shares a beautiful message. Many thanks to the poet.
This is an amazing poem - saying so much in very few words. Things don't always go the way we want, and sometimes we have to adapt and do so cheerfully - a very important lesson. It is also picturesque and has the kind of brevity and flow that brings it easily to mind - like Emily Dickinson's "If I can stop one heart from breaking." It's an amazing poem with a good message. Thank you for sharing.
Woah! This is a funny poem and I can relate to it. I've misplaced my glasses too, more times than I care to remember and when I eventually find them, I'd be like "Would you believe this?". It's often right under my nose! Amuses me a great deal. I do joke at home that if only my glasses had a line so I can just ring when it's missing, then get it wherever it is.
This poem is simple yet beautiful. Reminds me of "the little fish that would not do as it was bid." It teaches a great lesson and not just for kids. We all should beware of flatteries.
That was such a kind and honest evaluation. I can't take all the credit for this particular poem though. I owe it to my mum - the first person to point out Prov. 15:1 to me in the Bible, and also to an inspiring quote by William Norris. Thanks for the kind words.
