For Example: love, art, fashion, friendship and etc.

Close your eyes and wait

I have recently discovered
Beauty is in kindness
Due in part to my recent
And gradual blindness
And, as a visually inspired poet
I have found the deeper meaning of
words, and how you present

Appearance and physical beauty
I do not resent
But, when compared to inner beauty
It is irrelevant
So, next time you see an attractive face
Close your eyes and wait…

See their inner beauty first
Before, you are blinded by fate

    Thanks for sharing your lovely poem.
    You are right, one should always give priority to 'inner beauty'. This makes us happier and is quite a solace for our soul.

    A thing of beauty is a joy forever..as was once said by John Keats, but then again beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. So yes, beauty is something that sometimes must be judged without passion. I love this poem.

    I like this, it seems like the outer beauty is something everyone is guilty of seeing first. I like you how call it blindness because just like being blind you could end up falling into a hole you do not want to be in. Great poem.
