You Beautiful People
Hatred to humility.
I can forgive humanity.
What you evoke is beauty…
Hopeless to optimistic,
Treatment to my heart’s sickness,
These people don’t hate me…
Doubtful to certain,
Love conquers all evil.
I truly adore…
You beautiful People.

This poem is the light at the end of the tunnel. People deserve love.
This was such a simple but powerful message. I especially loved your opening line of “hatred to humility”. Deep down our projected anger is just hiding our pain. Also, the juxtaposition and contrast within each line evokes a lot of emotion in such a small about of words. I hope to see you write more!
Thank you for your positivity! I love the contrasts you make with hatred and humility, hopeless and optimistic. Keep writing!
I love how this poem starts off with a darker atmosphere and has a spark of light in the first verse with the use of the word beauty in contrast to hatred. This can be translated as to how certain people try to find the light in the darkness which is always something that can lead us in the right direction. This theme and tone of darkness compared to light is repeated throughout the poem as every verse is opened with contrasting words, this is a great idea because it can reflect how dealing with struggles is something that most people face, some more than others and is something that can create a link between the author and the readers. Keep up the good work, this poem is very inspiring and can be something many people can learn from.
This poem is very touching and realistic. I like the last line and how it wraps up so nicely. No matter what happens there are always people that view you for you. It’s hard to be yourself because people view you differently, but make the promise to yourself to be true to you. Evil is just jealous of the love that’s why love always wins. You got this and remember the best is yet to come!
I love how optimistic this poem is towards humanity. Most people have given up on humanity, but you seem to give everyone the benefit of the doubt – which is nice for a change. You seem to be a very warm and positive person and it shows through this piece.
Hi! Your poem conveys a very powerful deeper message. That is the art of poetry. You bring in so many feelings whether it’s hatred, optimism, love, etc., and solidly align them from start to end. Ending with “you beautiful people” is a warm ending to such a powerful poem.
This poem gives me some hope. It’s a touch of reality and a touch of longful wanting. I liked how the last line is the title of the poem which is full circle! Make sure to keep on writing!
While this was a rather short piece, it truly spoke volumes. I have always been a firm believer that love conquers all evil in the world and reading this brought that outlook back to the forefront of my mind, reminding me how important it is to live in love. An influencer I have watched a lot uses the saying “If you lead with love, you’ll leave with love,” constantly and I think this poem is a beautiful reflection of that same idea. What a beautiful way of looking at the world and the circumstances with which you have been provided. Thank you for sharing this wonderful piece.
I think this poem is very powerful. The first and the last sentence really ties the message altogether. Although people tend to be hateful everyone deserves to be loved and appreciated no matter what. The optimism and high hopes of this poem will truly go a long way with all of your kind words. Keep up the amazing work!
a. Love does conquer all evil! You are very observant which is a great quality to have. It sounds so graceful and the last line just summed all of it up. Great job!
This is such a nice poem. It’s not as heavy and dark as other poems. However, you made just as much of a positive impact as other writers. You are on the right track in life. Evil deeds exist in this world but so do good deeds. Positivity is the best answer.
Such deep reasoning. Thanks for reminding us that love conquers evil. I support this. A soft answer turns away wrath but grievous words stir up anger. Many times if we don’t have something good to say or comment it is better we keep silent. Always strive to say something positive to each other as you may never know what bad of a day someone is having.
I love this poem! It shows that there will be good soon! Even during the hard times it is important to look for the good in the situation or the future. This poem portrays such an important message. You did a great job!
This poem shows that there is beauty in people and in humanity. If you turn on the news all you see is all the terrible things people do and all the things going wrong in our world right now, but I think this poem tells people that there are still good people out in the world and there’s a lot of them! There may be bad people, but the amount of good people out ways them immensely. I love the line you wrote “Love conquers all evil” and I believe in that as well. Love is a powerful feeling, and everyone craves it, and I think that love conquers evil because evil can be strong, but it’s not common, but everyone wants and gives off love.
I love the raw and true feelings of life you give and show throughout your poem. In society, it is not always easy to see the beautiful things around us when we are low. The difference between your negative thoughts transformed into positive ones is a certain sign of strength, and you should be proud to see people and life in a more beautiful light than before. Your poem is a great read for those who may not be able to see those things right now, and relatable to those who have overcome!
The message you shared with us in this poem is very powerful. The ability to forgive people for their wrongdoings is special, and I think a lot of people in today’s world either don’t hold or don’t practice this ability often. I really liked the way that the beginning of the poem began dark and spoke of the evils of humanity in the line “Hatred to humility”, and the poem ended with “I truly adore…/ You beautiful people”. Life is not all good and bad, it’s a mix of both, sometimes one heavier than the other, and I think this poem speaks to that. Thank you for sharing,
This poem is very brief but to the point. It shares such a beautiful message. During these times today, a lot of people are going through so many hardships and everyone deserves to have that love!
Thank you for this beautiful poem! The ability to change and grow is such a blessing. I can tell you inspire others that have not learned how to hope, love, and forgive. Keep writing!
Hey TT I hope all is doing well, I really like your poem. Why I picked it is the way is that humanity should be. I don’t think we expect people to be so horrible to each other and also kind to people. But with all of the hate that the world is getting its amazing when someone is kind enough to show us the slightest bit of compassion.
I really enjoyed your poem! Even though the poem is short it is really sweet and I definitely understand exactly what you are saying in this poem. I love how you are so hopeful about the human race. Even though you are in a negative place right now your mind set is positive. I really love that and I hope you continue to keep that mind set if after you are released.
This poem gives hope to its reader and is beautifully written. It is very optimistic towards people and their humility. The poem shows that humanity creates beauty. This optimism then heals a sickness showing hope. The last line is also very positive and inspiring to others. I love how this positivity contrasts with the negative and a unique outlook.
This poem brings hope and love to the hopeless and loveless. Where there is darkness, there is light. But patience and a changed mindset are the only abilities we can choose to change about ourselves to bring about a better life.
Thank you for sharing your poem! Your positivity is so admirable! The concept on humility, hopeless and optimistic was so inspirational. It was a wonderful message!
This poem is concise but beautiful. It shows that there is always light at the end of the tunnel and not to lose hope in humanity. At the heart, we are all good people.
TT this poem really stands out. You brought forth a lot in a few lines. It was simple and powerful. Keep up the writing.
I love this poem and think you have an amazing outlook on life. Many times, prisoners focus on the negative and only see the bad in situations, but you seem to be doing the exact opposite. You are extremely optimistic and I think that is great.
This poem is so optimistic! The contrasts used in this poem show how a person’s mindset and outlook on life can change little by little. I think the first contrast creates a light and hopeful vibe for the reader, and sets the tone well for the rest of the poem. I also love how short this poem is because it really goes to show how you do not need to say a lot and use complex vocabulary to express yourself and evoke powerful memories from your reader. Great work!
This really exudes the love one may have for mankind no matter how many ups and downs we go through and no matter how messed up humanity may be. It’s like true love trumps everything and shines through all the evil and darkness.
I want to start off by saying the use of contradicting words with one another like hopeless with optimistic and doubtful to certain shows the real raw nature of humans. It does not come off at criticism to humans but a praise in how we live showing positivity and hope for everyone.
I think your interpretation of how you believe redemption works. I love how positive you are and how much love you have in your heart. There should be way more people who think like you do. I think all people have the opportunity to be beautiful inside and out, but it is up to them if they really use that opportunity. I really hope that wherever you are you use this thought process every day. Great Job!
Thank you for spreading positivity.
I agree with your powerful message that we can all move from a place of hatred and hopelessness to one of forgiveness, optimism, and confidence.
I really enjoyed reading your poem. I liked the simplicity of it, while still conveying a powerful message. You gave a hopeful outlook and were very positive. It’s hard to find this kind of view, as everyone sees the negative. I really enjoyed your different approach. Thank you for sharing.
TT, Even though this poem is small and doesn’t physically say much, it really does say a lot, You describe what seems to be a rare event that is seen a lot less now in this time, there is not a lot of expression of love and it is good to explain that love is greater than evil and will overcome it.
Hello! I really love your poem and think it is beautiful. It really highlights that kindness and giving people a voice that others can listen to can really open up someone’s heart. It seems like you have been given this voice and your perspective on the world has made a full 180. I love the hope that this poem provides, and I thank you for the work. Wishing you all the best, and hoping to read more from you in the future!
This poem is concise and hopeful. It’s important to stay positive. All too often it’s easy to get wrapped up in negativity. Choosing to focus on the positive instead of the negative is admirable.
