Stay Beautiful

Stay Beautiful

Anybody ever tell you
That you’re pretty cute?
Too bad it won’t last if you
Continue to pollute

Your body with those cigarettes
I can’t imagine why
You’d stain those pearly whites and turn
Your skin leathered and dry

Do the world a favor and
Stay beautiful by quitting
Effects of smoking on a pretty
Girl are not befitting

    yes and the effect of smoking;active or passive on lungs is evern more devastating…very well crafted poetry miro
    Have a great day 🙂

      True, although many smokers I’ve spoken to refuse to believe it, since they can’t actually see it for themselves. Leathery skin and yellow teeth can’t be denied though. 🙂

    Absolutely agree with Soma!
    Well done, Miro!

    😉 They should write this on every packet.

      Yes, it would probably be more effective than pictures of diseased lungs. “My looks are at risk? Oh no!” 🙂

        Oh yes, I agree! That’s pathetic.
        My grandpa died of lung cancer when I was little. His death really shocked me so I’ve NEVER smoked a cigarette.

    I agree with Soma, and this is just so well written. I wish more people would understand the harm they are doing to themselves and others. Great post!

    This is such a good message Miro, one I wish more young people would take heed of. Having nursed my own Father through Lung Cancer and watching his suffering you would think twice about smoking..
    But even My Dad whose own Father died with Lung Cancer didnt take heed, I think no thinks its going to happen to them.. But it does and SMOKING KILLS pure and simple..
