Ugly Duckling

Indian Bloggers


Its April of 2017 and Day 21ย of A to Z Challenge. I am doing Idiom a day and 8 line poem for the idiom.

Idiom: Ugly Duckling

Meaning: child who shows little promise, but who develops later into a real talent or beauty, a person who turns out to be beautiful or talented against all expectations

Gifted us all,
To be ugly duckling.
Some realize, fly out,
Some realize, spread out,
Where most of us,
Assume born beautiful,
And just die ugly.

Note: All the challenge prompts can be found HERE.

  1. So true words of reality but later that same ugly duckling can become a beautiful flower and can achieve whatever they want and the world is theirs but as you rightly said in the end one has to again pick up their own socks to not fall back. Awesome poem, Prakash.
