English: Elegant Woman at the Rail

English: Elegant Woman at the Rail (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I wish that I had elegance
I wish that I had grace
I wish I had charisma
A strong, arresting face

I wish that I was fashionable
I wish I had elan
I wish the glitterati
Bowed at my command

But I am somewhat awkward
I never learned the style
I haven’t got the dress sense
To make designers smile

I’m waiting for my moment
My invitation to the dance
If only for one moment
I could know elegance

    Just think your elegant words will never age yet a woman once thought beautiful may not always seem so, fashion is so fleeting. showing elegance in writing, in my opinion, is less artificial and dare i say vain.
