BEAUTY

You may think beauty can be seen.
It can be seen, and it can make you feel like
it is taking you to a wonderful, distant place.
But how wonderful does that place prove to be?
And just how far away is it?
By looks you can only find beauty
that is pleasing to the eyes though.
What good is physical beauty
if there is nothing underneath to back it up?
If this was all that beauty was
then paying the high price for beauty would be vanity.
It is much better to find inner beauty
which pleases the heart, then trying to just please your eyes.
A beautiful appearance is just a shell.
Can it be easily cracked because it is just a frail outer layer?
No, let its roots run deeper than that
and support the beauty I can see.
You can spend your time striving find one that is beautiful.
You can use your effort and find beauty
but if it proves to be only on the surface
then you have used your time and effort all in vain.
But no, there is more to beauty.
It can be found by prying those shells open and peering inside.
That beauty that you find can give you happiness
even if happiness you have never known.
It can help you to look at yourself
and find how far your beauty goes.
It can help you to find new leaves to turn over
and finally let your true self come bursting forth.
Much, much more can be found than that vain beauty
but only in a special one.
Beauty, what a lovly word.
But who is one that can be called beautiful?
A person who can take your mind
and run with it to a distant, blissful place.
One who can take your cloudy days
and turn them into wonderful skies of blue

Welcome to Passions FreeSoul this piece
has made quite a statement. Thanks for
sharing - finding true beauty is quite
a quest.
It is a wise person indeed who knows that
beauty is only skin deep.

Keep on writing. I will be looking for
more.

Freesoul,

Welcome to Passions. A good first post. You touch upon a very important subject.  I was taught, while dating, to choose with my ears and not my eyes. If you really seek an inner beauty, listen(or read). From the overflow of the heart....the mouth speaks.
