Beauty And Scars

Close your eyes and picture beauty.
What is it that you see?
A baby, a mountain, a river?
Or maybe an old oak tree?

There is beauty all around us,
But some of it's hard to find,
Perhaps in the eyes of a weary soul
To which life has not been kind.

Maybe a life so shattered
And their world torn apart.
Hurting and so very alone,
They live with a broken heart.

Look beyond what you see.
Love them for who they are.
Do this, and you will find
Beauty beneath the scars.

There's beauty all around you in what we see with the human eye. But there is a beauty that exceeds further that we can imagine. It's the beauty within yourself that shows the world a beauty that no words could ever describe...the human soul that has characteristics of God.

I think words put together in a certain order can be amazing or sometimes hurtful. Scars are inside and out. Some don't think about the ones they don't see. Thank you for your poem. It helped me today. I'm very up and mostly down on myself physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Reading good words put together in a certain but individualized order can change a person's way of thinking. Even if just for a day. Thank You. I needed to read this.

This is a lovely poem. It's easy read and it shares a beautiful message. Many thanks to the poet.
