What Is Beautiful? - Poem by Kayla Oakley

What is beautiful?
and is it only skin deep

or does it go on for ever

through the canyons of your soul
does inner beauty really seep through
this wall called skin

or does it hide inside like a child

never seeing the sun
never coming out to play
never stirring
never moving

just sitting for all of eternity
and if all of this exists
who decided to discriminate the ugly
who would think of a thing that horrible
that crude

life is amazing through the eyes of the out casts
the 'losers'
is it that wonderful through the eyes
of the so called beautiful
answer that
