Beauty Is in the Beholder's Eye
"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" they say, and I agree.
Anyone can make anything beautiful or ugly by his seeing,
He can turn a red rose into green, or a yellow daffodil into brown,
A small hill, into a steep mountain or a huge stunt into a trail.
"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" you see, True.
Anyone can turn a wonderful evening into hell,
A rosy cheek into a black old salamander,
A tiny or slight quarrel into a hilarious war.
"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder", I subscribe.
You can turn your lifeless surrounding into a living paradise,
Your dilapidated and haunted house into colorful zoo,
A monotonous work into a stirring adventure.
"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder", I surmise,
Anyone can turn a homely woman into a stunning princes,
A tiger wife into a beauty queen,
A cold and dead husband into a spirited king.
"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder", I declare.
No matter what it is, or where it may be,
It is in the person's mind, his thinking, even his action,
It is his mindset, his own real perception.
Happy people become only happy when they choose to.
Contentment comes only to those who would have it,
Real joy to those who have a place for it in their hearts,
In their minds, and in their being.
