The Face Of True Beauty

If all the content of your heart
Your mind and soul laid bare
What sight would be revealed to all
Would it be fine and fair
Or something that you’d want to hide
To cover up, not see
For would your inner life be pure
Or just plain old nasty

And if the inner thoughts you think
Were written on your face
Would the picture be pretty
Of simply a disgrace
Would all those words you want to say
That lurk beneath unseen
Be pleasant if put on full view
Be murky or pristine

For our facades must so reflect
Our inner self; our core
To not conflict and cause much harm
For peace to reign secure
And then the person you become
Will glow and simply be
Holistic, integrated self
That shines out true beauty

Virtues

With all the money in the world
Somethings are not for sale
Good manners, morals and respect
Are free – no cash entailed!

Then character and common sense
Sit past the bankers door
Lest trust, patience, integrity
No charge for rich or poor

And then there’s love with no set price
Not to be bought or sold
For all these things you cannot buy
Just learn, uplift, behold!
