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

Good poem.It is said that Women in general long for beauty but it's in their youth.Old women and envy! perhaps I'm not agreeing. May be you are true.
