In ugly there is beauty, that’s an accepted fact,
In beauty one can find, all that ugly lack.
Ugly rides the air in the sounds that we hear.
I bet that where you’re standing it’s lurking very near.
Ugly is insidious, it pervades the very mind!
It makes the previously rational, coarse and unkind.
Ugly offends the eye, it deadens what’s in the ear.
It’s the pain that wells up and shows itself as a tear.
The world wasn’t made of ugly, but it has become that way,
Through man’s indifference and the results are clear today!
A new covering of tarmac, new concrete being poured.
The compelling lure of money is now more and more adored.
Dirt and grime are everywhere, they’re now included in written word.
But perhaps you think what I write is gibberish, and plainly quite absurd.
If those are your thoughts then I’m envious of your reason.
Your heart must be following beauty as its one true guiding beacon!
