Behind every beauty
Is blood and misery
The features sculpted with the flesh of the poor
And the meaning written blood of the ugly
Behind every beauty
There are tears
There are innocent men barred in tight cages
There are lost souls trapped in an earthbound hell
While all you see is the sunset
Or the beautiful, gleaming smile
Or the words of love carved into the birch tree
Behind every beauty, there is suffering
Because every beauty comes from a crudeness
And only those whove felt no pain ask
"What's behind every beauty?"
