The Definition Of Beauty - Poem by Nazmul Haque

Beauty is a creation of love.
It is the loving eye that imparts it-
that creates it.

Beauty doesn't belong to the beautiful,
People think they love
because the beloved is so beautiful.
but, the reality is just the opposite:
Infact the beloved looks so beautiful
because he is in love with her,
because he looks at her
not with the eye,
but with the heart.

When you are in love
the beloved appears so exceptional;
when you are not in love,
the same person looks so common.
Infact it is love
that is creating the difference.

Look with the eyes of love,
and the whole existence becomes beautiful.
Look with hate,
and everything becomes ugly.

It all depends on you,
-what kind of world
you want to live in?
If you want to live in hell,
create more and more hate
and you will be in hell.
If you want to be in heaven,
create more and more love,
and see - you are in heaven.

Love will go on creating beauty
to each and every thing
that surrounds you.
This same world becomes divine
when looked through the eyes of love.
This same world becomes hellish
when looked through the eyes of hate.
