- SEEING BEAUTY -


      Why have all a beauty ideal
      Every day we make aesthetic judgments of each other
      We put the characters and judge each other's appearance
      What is beauty and what is hideous
      Is it  the feathers that make a beautiful peacock
      Is there consistency between the outer and inner


      Unlock the diamonds fiery beauty in yourself
      Is appearance important for a happy life
      Long dark eyelashes, full lips and big tits
      Or it's about charisma, inner beauty and charm
      The beauty ideal ... naturally beautiful


      It is of course true that beauty comes from within
      through the personality and the radiance
      Do not let a different appearance scare you away
      A huge body, nerdy glasses, big nose and enormous ears
      Beast, behind the raw, brutal exterior hides a warm and sensitive soul
      There is no appearance that determines whether we are valuable or not.


      All beauty and intelligence in this world comes from nature
      and we are a vibrant and beautiful part of the whole
      We do not love someone because they are beautiful
      But we think they are beautiful because we love them
      You ...... are an incredibly great person

    Absolutely brilliant and so true . Perhaps if we all embraced that concept There just might be fewer people being bullied on the internet or in the classroom and the adult world wouldn't be so cruel to each other.

    Great message we all need to take to heart. Real beauty shines from the heart. I've talked to old ladies, and found the little cheeky girl in their eyes is still there, talking about the past. I like Woman to be real women, bumps and all. big or small doesn't matter. personality, sense of humour and femininity over looks for me.Not plastic Barbie dolls, Spoiled and covered in make up dressed like tarts. oops I mist stop judging. sorry. great write. Pete.

    It is obvious that the author of this poem sees what is truly meaningful in life and in people. The sincerity is unmistakeable in these words and in you.
