Beauty from Within

Updated on January 18, 2017
beauty in the eyes that see
beauty in the eyes that see | Source

Beauty is not on the outside; it is something that you find deep down inside your heart and soul.

This poem that I wrote reflects true beauty in the real sense -


Beauty lies deep within,

It’s not on your face, nor on your skin,

Beauty shows in your kind words and smiles,

How you make your life worthwhile.

Beauty is there in kind acts of charity,

Beauty is present when you give to the needy,

Beauty means love, care, warm tender smiles,

Beauty is when you walk the extra mile.

The radiant beauty is in, your grace,

Your warmth, the care, and your tender embrace,

Your hugs and kisses to orphans in need,

That bring out smiles, happiness and belonging indeed,

Can’t you realize, don’t you see,

Beauty is there in you and me,

Feel it in your heart and believe,

Beauty is not what everyone perceives.

Beauty truly lies deep within,

Way beyond your outer skin.

You can find beauty within yourself,

A treasure buried inside oneself.

      I try and find beauty in everything! I wrote a Hub "I Find Beauty In Everything". I'd like to link this great Hub into that one. May I? I invite you to read mine.

      Voted UP, and will share.

      IT reminds me of the old saying, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder." Very deep poetic words but so much truth is within the lines.

      In this well-versed poem, you rightly said that true beauty lies in character and not appearance. I totally agree with you that beauty is skin-deep and real beauty comes from within. A fetching poem! Well-done!

      I do not find the words I fear for all the appreciation and encouraging words you have so generously showered uppon my poems. I feel, Poetry is a special niche, and is very difficult to find appreciation. THANKYOU. This will keep me writng and writing.
