The Better Prize

The outer beauty that we see
Is only a façade
A trick used to confuse the mind
Although it seems quite odd

We tend to judge
Those that we see
On outer beauty alone
But what lies inside
The better prize
Should crown our lovers throne

This mortal life we live
Can be so short and sweet
We turn away
And in our haste
It passes instantly

So open up your foolish eyes
Ignorant to what’s inside
So easy to believe a lie
And miss out on the better prize
