Beauty Within

    I can see
a beautiful soul
 lies within me.
    Therefore,
    no mirror
   can reflect
who I really am.







 
For Giorgio Veneto's contest - "Laconic Verse"

    Hi Kelly, I think this poem is amazing. I am creating a zine with elements to encourage self confidence and self discovery. Would you allow me to feature your poem in it? Thank you so much.

    Kelly Such a wonderfully written lesson on beauty. The only true beauty in someone is how they treat others and live life. I may not be beautiful outside--but am gorgeous inside. LOL Thanks for the wonderful comment on my One Plus One poem.

    I completely agree with you, Robin! True beauty is only found on the inside, not the outside. Unfortunately, the inner beauty is much harder for everyone to see! Thank you for the wonderful comments, Robin! :)

    A beautiful poem, Kelly.... Very deep, for a small verse.. Linda

    Hi Kelly, the only true beauty comes from within. What makes us what we are lies within, the outer shell is but a facade for other people. As long as you know who you truly are that is all that ever matters Kelly. I had so many myselfs inside of me that I just decided, I'm the dark man, full stop. It helped me also to understand myself. These are words that truly mean something. Be who you are. The beauty that lies within can be such a guiding light. Have a good day. Your Friend....MIKE.

    Thank you so much, Mike! It is difficult sometimes to know who we really are, especially when we hear what others think of us. But, deep in our hearts we know our true selves, and no one can ever change that.

    thanks for telling me about your acquaintance with depression, or someone who has it. Yes, it is quite the thing to live with!!

    Yes it is, Andrea, you never know which "personality" you are going to get each day. It would be great if there were a real cure for depression.
