She Doesn't Know She's Beautiful

She doesn't know she's beautiful
It's in the way she walks, she talks
The way she moves when she thinks no one is looking
The way she tilts her head when she laughs
She doesn't know she's beautiful

But this beauty isn't just about physical appearance
It's about her soul
She has such a gentle heart
Caring for everyone around her
And this is what creates that beauty

She doesn't know she's beautiful
And I'm not the only one who sees
There are few among us who recognize it
Staring amazed as she passes
Not knowing what makes us stare

She's an amazing girl
With a heart more pure than you can know
But it's difficult when all you see is the outside shell
Hiding nearly everything she is
Covering up the beauty

You're Beautiful!!!
I want to scream, to shout
To make her understand
But she doesn't know she's beautiful
She doesn't know she's wonderful

She thinks beauty lies in clothing, makeup, jewelry
She thinks it lies in her appearance
She doesn't realize how wrong she is
She doesn't realize that true beauty
Comes from within


She doesn't know she's beautiful
She doesn't know that some would give the world
To see her smile just for them
To see her open up and let the beauty free
To see her comfortable with all that she is

Wait for the one who can see you for that beauty
Wait for the one who can see past the mask
Past the clothing, and makeup, and stuff
That fill up your life
And fill up your heart

Because no matter what
You're beautiful
I mean it with all my heart
You're more beautiful than you imagine
And knowing it's the hardest part

..and if beauty is your main objective in writing then you have certainly achieved your goal!

This is a gift as a writer who have so generously shared with us - and that in itself is a beautiful thing!

Great poetry. As a poet myself, I can see and hear the words clearly. A very unique writing you have here. You have a gift and a kind heart, which is what I take out of the words that you have written. Truly beautiful, inside to out. Great piece.

Very nice poem. This reminded me of the song "She Don't Know She's Beautiful" by Sammy Kershaw. It's country, don't know if you've heard of it or not but it's a good song about the same thing you're talking about.

This is the chorus:

She don't know she's beautiful (never crossed her mind)

She don't know she's beautiful (no she's not that kind)

She don't know she's beautiful

Though time and time I've told her so

Gosh, what a lovely poem. Could I quote at least part of it in my novel "Burnt Sienna?" It's about a lady who was burned by her ex and then learns to love again when she meets a man on a tropical island. You can check it out on my list of Hubs to get a feel for it before you give me your answer. But I think you will see it's perfect.

Very beautiful piece of writing.Everything God created by saying:Be ,and then be it.But man was created directly by God s hand,which means he is the most beautiful creature and it s an honor for us to be special and loved so much by God.So,that Girl is beautiful by nature and her characters makes her looking more beautiful.The real beauty is the only the skin deep.I voted up.

I love this poem. It touches the heart because I believe everyone knows or is the girl who doesn't really know she is beautiful.
