Broken Worth

Define beautiful.
Now try to do it
without having a particular image in your mind.
You wont.
Point out and measure attributes,
features and intricate details.
Spare nothing in the imagining,
know 'this'... is beauty.

Is it someone?Something?Is it a feeling?
It cannot be defined as a chart, or as anything...

Beauty is not a fact.
It cannot be replicated by everybody, using the same materials,
same data,
same pieces,
to provide an equal and quantified response.

It has only one rule, one law,one constant.

Beauty is personal.
Beauty is what we each see of it, make of it, take from it.
Beauty can be eternal,fleeting,nascent or complete.

I myself have broken my own worth on the promise of one shallow casement of beauty,
and realised it in the depth of another.

I implore that you see beauty for what it is.
Take it not as granted by what others say it should be.
Find a definition of beauty your own.
Even if people accept your answer as a sum of its parts,
only you will know
how you came to such a conclusion...
no matter how much you try to explain it.

I enjoyed this; especially when you wrote "Find a definition of beauty your own" because that is the absolute truth. Its good to see you posting more often.
