beauty is all there is,
except the most of us don't have the eyes to see.
we are blinder then a blind man.
we don't know what beauty is even if
it is staring at us in the face.
we are blinded by prejudices,
preconceived ideas, social conditioning, media programming.
Beauty is all there is,
it is in everything we see.
we knew it when we were a little kid,
when everything we beheld filled us with wonder
until we were told off for lingering too long on the side of the road
staring at a dandelion,
until we were told to never touch that bug or
pick up rubbishes on the ground
until we were told we looked absolutely ridiculous in that dress
we'd better do something with those freckles....
and nothing is ever good enough again
everything could always be better.....
a better dress, better car, better house, better partner, better world....
but beauty never went away,
it is still here,
staring at us in the face
