Radiant Heart - Poem by David Harris

The long running battles with heartaches
in each life filled with trouble and strife.
We look around at ourselves
rarely we like what we see.

Our appearance looks grotesque.
Let us change it for another.
New clothes with the latest fashion,
no, they don’t do the trick.

We need to change our features;
plastic surgery may be the key,
hoping to look better
in everyone’s eyes.

However, it does not matter
how we dress or look like.
We don’t need plastic surgery
to have love come our way.

Look around at what you see;
love is not about ugly or beauty,
but about what is deep inside,
and the radiant heart that beats within.
