it's all about spin

a thing lacking in beauty
finds nothing of joy, ever;
it's uncomeliness increases
and will never be celebrated
an unsightly recollection

passed on each generation,
so make the most of opportune
moments to leave a mark
whether in ugliness or beauty
kindle always, that inner spark

I really like this one. It has a "do not go gently" quality to it. And the opening line "a thing lacking in beauty finds nothing of joy" is brilliant.

A nice sentiment, but I found the execution a bit stifled. The fact that the first and the last two lines have a song like rhythm while everything in between has a prosaic one creates this jarring break in communiciation. Doesn't really fit with the poem. Just my honest opinion.
