In these days it has become so common,
almost constant in society for there to be value on the body.

Statements and Fliers made by shameless liars.

Papers and projections abundant in indulgences and desires.

"Everlasting Beauty"

"Godly Passion"

"Effortless Wealth"

The Imitation of Idols, of whom are unattainable.

And to what point and purpose?

As I said feeding the craving of the mind and heart.
Taunting with a vision beyond attainment and feeding ones desire.

To fuel this lust of fame and reward; and in-doing so, sowing this addiction within others.

This is about exploiting the physical being.
Wanting to be loved and needed for it. Employment build upon it.
Thriving from the weakness of many.

It is so sad, because investments build in this world do not last.
That is if unless they are rooted in something beyond this world.

It sad how common place these spectacles are within all media.

How dreadful it must be once the body of one is tossed aside for living too long.
The signs of age on par with damnation in their eyes.

A life built in pleasure will always be short lived as the body is short on time.
This may seem confusing at first, but that that's because I'm jumping between two topics. If you wish to guess the two topics stop reading after this line.

()()These are the two topics I concidered with this poem.()()


1. The obsession with flawless beauty in the media and society.

2. The Industry of Pornography and Exotic Action.

This is amazing. It's truthful, opinionated, blunt, and very open. I love the straightforwardness. I saw both of the topics, but I also saw a third. Rape. What do you think? This meant a lot to me, because it expresses a lot of my opinions and feelings on these matters. Very well written.

Rape... that's interesting of you to say. In rape on the spirit and of time is rather common in that idea.

But i want to hear what gave you that idea.

1) "In these days it has become so common,
almost constant in society for there to be value on the body."

Rape IS common. It happens all around us, the worst part being that most victims don't admit it happened to them. Why? They value themselves less due to this incident. It effects their self esteem on enormous levels.

2) "Statements and Fliers made by shameless liars.

Papers and projections abundant in indulgences and desires.

"Everlasting Beauty"

"Godly Passion"

"Effortless Wealth"

The Imitation of Idols, of whom are unattainable.

And to what point and purpose?"

Society leads you to WANT these things, and if you are a victim of rape, you want them still. Yet, they ARE unattainable, because self value is found in oneself, not in others. Victims of rape, as well as others, fail to realize that.

3) "How dreadful it must be once the body of one is tossed aside for living too long.
The signs of age on par with damnation in their eyes.

A life built in pleasure will always be short lived as the body is short on time."

Your body ages, but for a victim is not already shamed? But they are ashamed of themselves, and only see damnation in their own eyes and the ugliness of themselves. The more they think about this rape of their bodies, the more hideous it becomes. The body is short, and it feels shorter to a rape victim.

Well i must say you've build up a very compleling argument in favor of that third aspect.

It's quite unsettling to think of it like that.

Well, sometimes, there is more to the art than we intend. That is the beauty of art. What something means to one person can mean something entirely different to someone else. I love that.

"And to what point and purpose?"...
people questioning that every minute. i think all of us.

I just think, maybe.... some people just being trapped in social life. It's kind of needs to survive in society

Well fact, for many people society is kind of God

First and foremost, I want you thank you for adding my story to your favorites.

I like the different interpertations people get out of this.
I just wonder about rise in the usage of the body and physical items to gain attention and benefits via the media.

It's just sort of sad

Not sort. It is.

Makes you wonder what life would be like without physical attraction influencing actions and thoughts...

Methinks it would be philosophy then since we would question things like is life real or a construct of a god or something...

Your thoughts?

That's possible but sadly to some people self-imagine, desire and the entirety of life. That's what I'm speaking out against.

Desire is a tough one to get rid of...and entirety of life?

I meant that some people make these ideas of self-imagine and desire the whole focus of their life.

When we should realize that life is not based only in the physical world.
