Youths blind vanity lost

entry picture

Only with the mirror cracked

do scales fall from eyes,

in splintered shards the truth refracts

exposing beauty’s lies.

 

Beneath vanity, lingers proof

of darkness or of light,

and from their shallow love of youth

the blind are given sight.

Hi, David,

Long before Forrest Gump told us his mama's version, I used to hear my grandmother say, "pretty is as pretty does"..

So true.
