Hidden Beauty

Hidden beauty I know can dwell within a body worn and frail. I think of one who had been doled great miseries, so once grown old, his body seemed a dismal shell. . Although he’d lived on earth his hell, grown nearly crippled and unwell, his inner fortitude was gold - Hidden beauty! Life’s many hardships could not quell his positivity, nor fell that strength - his fire against the cold - a virtue that should be extolled! In knowing him, I well could tell hidden beauty. For Skat's the Premiere Contest number 14 Poetry Contest
