Ask your soul, not your mind

For once,
Take your eyes and years deep into your soul,
The deepest there can be,
To the part where you've never dared to go
If you are afraid, hold my hand 
And we shall see.

Come follow me
And we will be in no trouble,
For I have been there already!
Then ask your soul, what real beauty is,
And let him answer freely.

If you can do that than you will know.
Why all the high places are actually so low?
Why the sun doesn't shine on everyone at a time?
Why all the dew drops don’t have the same glow?
Why the quiet boy in your neighborhood always keeps his window close?
Why the daylight doesn’t shine on every rose?

It’s not the inner beauty that wins you the race,
Just look in the mirror and ask your face.
Your moral might deceive you but your eyes wont,
For once trust your eyes then you will know,
In this cruel place,
Beauty is the only thing that drives the motion
(Other than money). Beauty is the only thing,
That will give you peace and true happy notion
