The Essence of Beauty :Reflections on the truth behind beauty
The essence of beauty, through and true,
Is not how we look, our outward view;
Not our frontal image, bound for display
Though important, to not be in disarray.
It is a plus, when appearance pleases
But not, after all, true beauty that eases.
Beautiful -Christina Aguilera
The essence of true beauty is a soul that inspires
With loving words and actions that we admire
To a truthful heart we gravitate
It is honesty, sincerity that motivates
From genuine feeling we do not shirk
For it is what’s real that serves to perk.
The essence of true beauty is the sacrifice
For the greater needs of others, to compromise
The scarce ability to render
The listening ear we find most tender
To give one’s time, a gift most treasured
Asset of value which cannot be measured
One Direction - What Makes You Beautiful
The essence of true beauty is to spare a thought
For others when they are overwrought
To pay heed to what others require
To make their desires at times prior
When they be, in dark distress
Their concerns gently address
The essence of true beauty is to have resolve
The little whims of others to absolve
To be determined, persevere
When at the darkest points of fear
An enchanting lure is the iron will
That stays sure, put through the mill.
The essence of true beauty is to treasure
The gift of others, in great measure
To them to extend, in magnitude
The prized present of gratitude
Insignificant as they seem to be
Their hand in your life may not be wee.
When asked what true beauty is
What is beautiful that sets us apart
A gift of ourselves, from the heart.
