Beauty is not what it seems

Snapping Turtles are Beautiful too.

Snapping Turtles are Beautiful too.

Do our little turtle friends

ponder the pounds on their other ends? 

Do they worry about their waddling gait 

or obsess about their baby weight?

Do girl turtles blink and bat their eyes 

When they want to impress the guys?

What about their shells

do they too

wonder if they’re beautiful?

No I don’t think turtles do

cause they live for the moment

unlike me and you. 

I think they live to eat and play

and make new turtles on the way. 

I bet beauty doesn’t cross their minds

I bet they don’t worry about wrinkles and lines

and lucky for them for  being alive

without facepaint, and scalpels, and fake insides.
