Inner Beauty - Poem by Ben Bergeth

The girls I knew seemed fun and enjoyable
but they never seemed appealing.
They seemed different,
as if lacking something found in others.

I had it all wrong,
the fault was in me.
But I thought that they were in the wrong
and not my selfish eyes.

I looked at the appearance
then the heart.
The pretty girls caught my eye
and I ran after them.

Now, I can see. I am not blind.
I see the hearts and their beauty.
Then I see her face and her's.
They are stunning, surpassing the shallow heart.

Beauty lies in the heart.
Focus on the exterior is ignorance.
Looks will fade,
but the inner beauty will stay true.

    I agree a 100% about beauty lies in the heart and that we should focus on the inner beauty than the outer because the inner will always be true! I liked your poem! Thanks for sharing! (Report) Reply
