Beautiful And True

Beautiful And True

I glance at you,

Taking all of you in

And hear others, their voices so clear

Making fun of you again.

But as I stare I see you,

The twinkle in your eyes.

The beauty in the core of

Your strong soul.

The physical characteristics of your skin

That makes you who you are.

You are the north star

Shining in the sky,

Guiding others to a new life.

People envy that of which they

Can't understand.

You stand strong

And I glance at you, take you in my hand

I grasp at the hope

That I will be like you.

Beautiful

And true.


The Idea

I was with my parents at this bar, watching a friend's band preform, and there was a woman there. This woman dressed a little strangely. Not like anybody I had every really seen. A mixture of Lady Gaga adding her own little twist, I guess would be the best way to put it. Now, people were whispering and talking about her. It was very obvious but she just smiled at them and ignored them. She stayed strong. It seemed to not even bother her. I looked at her and suddenly saw a beauty, so beautiful that no eye could really see. I wanted to be like her. This is what this poem is about.

I LOVE THIS!! My mother always taught me "Dare to be different". Although I never dressed "differently", my poems were often looked upon as different and strange from a family of all athletes. I love to see someone have confidence and defy what others find as "normal". I bet this mystery lady would be honored to know that she inspired you. Rock on! Great hub!

That was lovely. Obviously, if you can see beauty in another is because you are a person with perception and insight. As they say, "It takes one to know one." Therefore, it takes a beautiful person, you, to be aware of beauty in others. Cheers to you!

Best wishes to you,
