Are You Beautiful?
Are you beautiful? Don’t compare yourselves to magazines or women on TV
Look past the mirror image and tell me what you see.
For beauty, true beauty is entirely within your control
Look past the reflected image and gaze into your soul.
When we only think of beauty in superficial ways
We forget everyone is beautiful in his or her own way.
When we learn to see that beauty then we are truly blessed
Because finding it in others uncovers the beauty we possess.
Our looks are bound to change as we get old and grey
But the beauty in our soul grows stronger every day.
That is the beauty we should nurture, the beauty of which we need to be aware
Not the ever changing outside appearance, but the beauty that’s always there.
With this in mind I’ll repeat the question? For the answer you don’t have to look far
So, once again, are you beautiful? ....Smile...of course you are.
