THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

by tbanarchy

They say that beauty is skin deep, And ugliness is to the bone. But there is no beauty in life at all— When you live all alone.

Beauty is not always perfect, And intelligence is not always good. For you should live life the way you want to; Not how others think you should.

“Born to lose, live to win.” Is that just another cliché? Or maybe it can save your life— As you fall victim to another day.

Are these words only a joke passing through time? Who has the right to say? Or maybe it is this: Just another thought for the day.

@bernardtwindwil Thanks for the kind words. To be honest, poetry's not my main type of writing. This is a poem I wrote years and years ago around the same time I wrote the other poem I published on here titled "G.O.D." Before dabbling in poetry, I used to writes songs back when I was in high school--and even recorded a few of them on my portable tape recorder (yes, I'm THAT old!)--so I think that helped me construct poetry better. So I wouldn't begin to know how to instruct others on how to "properly" write poetry anymore than I could instruct people on how to write other than just write the words down, spellcheck everything and put it out there to see if anyone enjoys it like I do.

Excellence in meter and rhyme. This was a great thought for today. This was such a well constructed poem that I could swear you are a writer. Could you possibly put a small learning resource together and write a story on how you go about metering and rhyming and using words that have a lyrical flow. I think it would really help some of the younger poets who are pouring their hearts out with clumsy sincerity.
