True Beauty - Poem by Eila Mahima Jaipaul

The me I see
from my mind
is what I'll never be.

That which you see
from your heart
Is what I am...

in the essence of true beauty
there has been assimilation
in heart and mind

this is no external beauty of divine creation
only concealed magnificence
of your eternal conception.

    My perception lies not so much on what was written but on from where the words have come. The insight that placed 'True Beauty' together is the 'you' that identifies with the heart AND the humble mind within! And, it is indeed recognized! Hey...are we the only ones knowing what we're are talking about? ? ? I hope not! That would be very, very sad...huh? LOL...
