Lasting Beauty - Poem by Doris Paul
You may not favor Adonis -
With classic features so rare,
You may not resemble Venus
With face so radiantly fair;
You may desire to be taller,
(So all can look up to you),
Or- you may wish to be smaller
To wear the outfit that's new.
Lucifer ( the beautiful cherub-
Arch -angel formerly of heav'n)-
Father'd sin in GOD's universe
When pride and greed were found in him.
On the other hand;
JESUS CHRIST- our loving Savior -
Had an unattractive visage, (however)
HIS boundless love was the magnet
Attracting all to HIS message.
Looks don't determine the essence
Of character a person has:
It's the beauty in our hearts
That for Eternity will last!
