The Vanity of Existence
by Philip Freneau

In youth, gay scenes attract our eyes,
And not suspecting their decay
Life's flowery fields before us rise,
Regardless of its winter day.

But vain pursuits, and joys as vain,
Convince us life is but a dream.
Death is to wake, to rise again
To that true life you best esteem.

Positively Stunning
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I used to be obsessed with fashion, caring far too much about clothes,
Like the sun whenever he's coming and going, is striking vanity's pose.

I lavished absurdly upon my wardrobe, in excess of what was practical,
Like the glittering rainbow colors, proffer more than what is passable!

Though I wasn't an awful person, in this one area, I admit I was vain,
As the seasons, once departed, flaunt beautiful faces again and again.

I regularly read fashion magazines, and kept up with current trends,

Beauty's Vanity and Worthlessness
by Joseph Ogbonna

Though I style my curly braids with ribbons bright,
and colour my sweet moist lips with royal red
to look as bright and fair as a newly wed.
Though I stand on two towers to get a better height,
with eyelashes that beckon at each gazer.
Though my trendy gowns make me a trailblazer
with great designer labels that distinguish.
Though I have curves which men wished they could relish,
revealed slightly through my scantily clad frame.
Though I have this charm which could hardened hearts tame,

Crucifixion
by Jeff Bresee

They say that the truth is a hard thing to take,
but maybe it’s time that we see
that we as a people are nothing but fake,
ensuring that’s how it will be.

We stand up demanding there’s tolerance,
doing so with our fists in the air.
It’s truly the oddest dance ever been danced,
hypocrisy beyond compare.

Beauty
by Jeff Bresee

I see it time and time again
that beauty’s made by what is spent.

A beauty that demands a price
with outer glow and inner ice.

And observation seems to tell
it’s only as deep as the well,

for come the day the well runs dry…

Into Piles
by Jeff Bresee

What in the world are we doing?
Who are we trying to beat?
It seems like we live our lives running,
as if we are losing our seats.

We never stop building up towers.
We never stop spinning around.
We never stop piling up into piles
everything that we’ve torn down.
