Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder,

It’s a common saying that is decoded from the look of a man,

But of a truth, genuine and true beauty is beyond what the eyes can see,

Only the heart can feel it,

It glows with such power, even the ‘blind’ will perceive.

Regardless of our status, rich or poor,

Aboriginality, the language or cultural background,

We all can see and perceive this inner beauty with the same view,

One advice for my fellow brothers,

Always by pass the look go straight inward,

And from the inward, outward appearance can be well appreciated.

And advice for everyone,

As you take time to make up the physical beauty,

Create more time to nurture the inner one,

For when you are inwardly ugly,

The outward projection is nothing but a fake.
