Beauty and Love - A Rewrite

Written by: Terrell Martin

If no one has ever told you dear friend, 
You possess a depth of beauty  
That’s unequivocal to anything or anyone
Ever before seen or ever will again.
These are not mere words to satisfy 
The hunger your soul searches for
But rather, the simple truth that we 
Are all made from the imaginings of 
An Unimaginable Mind 
Brought forth out of the fullness 
Of His loving grace and 
Eternally timeless time.  
We are all One of a KIND-
Hearted Being, all seeing and yet 
Freeing when we aren’t afraid to look
Upon ourselves in a looking glass; 
And I merely wanted to remind you again  
That You, Me, I, We possess
A depth of beauty now 
That will always last.  
Longer than after we’ve had our fill of
Buildings and bridges turned to rust;  
And longer perhaps than even after we collapse 
And our dry bones turn to dust.
Beauty is the magic ingredient 
Making us the magnificantly mysterious humans who
Love, honor, cherish, lift up,
Illuminate and polish everything inside 
And out until it shines...Beauty and love
Are what make us in the image of 
The One to whom we climb.
