Inside Beauty - Poem by Tameeka Smith

It's not in the mirror
Or on the outside
For you to see
It's in the inside and
It's visible for all to see
It doesn't matter,
How pretty you are
Because inside beauty
Is only skin deep
It's beneath layers
Of skin muscle and bone
It stands alone
It's all you need
Not name brand clothes
The inside makes you
Yeah it's true
The heart, lungs, and brain
Are all inside of you
There are other important parts too
When the body begins to age
It isn't just
Looks that fade
A body begins to wrinkle
It looks different to people
Inside beauty never fades
If it changes with age
It gets better with time
Like a fine wine or like
A valuable painting's worth
There's nothing like it
On the planet earth

    great poem Tameeka...we seldom think or care about inside beauty, people want material things, things that other people can see from a distance..forgeting the most important thing...inside beauty, it never fades as you said and you can only see it when you close enough and take a good look at someone....10++++ (Report) Reply
