04. Beautiful Women

young women, old women
in their heart
despite the years
the yearning to be beautiful

young women, old women
they look at each other
one with envy
the other with fear and contempt (of the wrinkles, old age)

young women, old women
they look into each other
one for a mother
the other for a daughter

Nice one, beautifully put, John.
A woman is always lovely, a great poem, loved it.
Love it! Absolutely great!
Hahaha... This is very true... Thoughtful of you, friend.
Beautiful poem. Much better than the 6.2 rating given by the voters so far!
