I am very new to poetry and I wouldn't consider myself a poet yet. I hope to be good one day, please forgive me if my poetry is quite bad.


Why is beauty a Pound of makeup on the face and not an ounce of happiness on my face Can it be a smile that lights The day , or is it powder That shimmers it way, Brighter than a smile Or am I, am I Just another pretty face?

Hello Andrea, your humility is refreshing. I've been writing for thirty odd years and i'm still not sure i'm a poet yet. Still, the only way to achieve that aim is, as you suggest, to keep at it, and one day hopefully you will be.
Your rhetorical question in the Samples section above about 'a Pound of makeup on the face and not an ounce of happiness' is well put. Keep at it. Good luck.
