Allen Steble

(20/04/1987)

Beauty


Does the ruggedness of a man
Make him attractive
Or is it more than appearance
Such as the essence of soul

Does the softness of a woman
Make her beautiful
Or is it beyond that golden hair
Such as her beauty in its whole

Does the whimsical smile of a man
Make him stand out
Or is it his lion like courage
Such that knows no limitation

Does the seductive scent of a woman
capture many eyes
Or is it her warm woolen embrace
that gives love its affirmation

The beauty of man and woman
Lies deep within the soul

    so does ones meaning of life, everything needed to be great lies within unfortunately times we are blind, victims of our own fears (Report) Reply

    The concept is unique in its adaptation and new rendering.
    As for the external beauty you may add, the beauty lies in the eyes of the onlooker as well. (Report) Reply
