SKIN DEEP

-------- SKIN DEEP -------- Beauty is only skin deep, a saying so old Though, it seems that is where beauty truly begins to unfold Those criticized for being ------- Too short, too tall Too fat, too small l Body odor, teeth in disorder Body parts in disproportion Facial acne not cured with lotions Disheveled hair, clothes in need of repair Many of these people I have known---- Considered underdogs, oddballs Weird and weak, flowers on the wall Lack of self esteem and confidence Too different, dark humor sense Look past and through these and you will find as I have found----- Delightful, delicious people !! Unique and special !! Loving and caring !! Daring to be themselves !! Unlike the " beautiful people " Knowing their limitations !! Not trying, or dying, to impress anyone !! Cultivating the real, true beauty !! Deep beneath skin depth !! Helping those with ills needing care !! Not looking in the mirror fixing their hair !! Willingness to do the silliest stuff !! Not caring if their clothes get mussed !! The most interesting people with lives rich and fascinating !! With beauty oozing with every word and touch and gesture !! These people draw my attention !! To experience their beauty--- IS TRULY A THING OF BEAUTY !!!!! BEYOND--- SKIN DEEP--- !!!!!
