Secrete Beauty

She was not blessed with comely grace, spurned and shunned by cupids arrows because of her displeasing face and breasts like kneecaps on a sparrow. Her scrawny frame one could infer if dressed in red and eyed sideways she’d mimic a thermometer; no outward grace to be displayed. Her real beauty was deep inside hidden behind two large, brown eyes where a beautiful soul resides eternally and undisguised. Beauty is a skin-deep grace it’s just a temporary thing: a short-term asset on a face that fades away like this years spring.

    I like your philosophical pieces...your point of view coincides with my own being the reason. Nothing more distasteful to me than a beautiful face/body with an empty head and heart. Good reading here, Albert, thanks for sharing.

    Inner beauty is immortal, comely grace is mortal. Most of us possess both but oftentimes emphasis is on the latter. Thanks for commenting.
