Inner Beauty - Poem by Cynthia BuhainBaello

Charm is deceptive and may not be sincere,
And beauty of a face may not soon be here.
As fleeting as Time, that faded Yesterday-
Appearances do not last, it can wither Today.

What is inside counts and will clearly show
The heart of the person, her real identity.
The inner beauty that everyone will know
It will always last, reveal truth and reality.

    Bestowing Seed Blessings

    beauty which endures
    warms blesses
    future years

    is beauty
    springing
    perpetually

    from purity
    radiant souls
    hearts of light

    wisdom loves
    generous gifting hearts
    bestowing seed blessings

    Your poem, so beautiful, inspired me to write a poem, I'm copying it below: -

    Beauty (Poem by Akhtar Jawad)

    The silk of your long and shining hair,
    The marble of your pinkish white forehead,
    The stars that twinkle in the deep brown eyes,
    Don’t ask me, I’ll be mislead,

    Every day you ask how you look on that day!
    The nose a pillar, holding palace of the charms,
    The lips so soft, what of pink soft roses,
    Matching the softness of your kind round arms,

    Hugged and embraced, eyelids are closed,
    Further I am moving on the love’s highway,
    Let me enter your heart the source of beauty,
    Handle with care my wheels of clay!

    If I slipped down I know sweetheart,
    Hills and fountains are waiting for me,
    My whole is looking for a narrow pavement,
    In a pink valley it’s me, do you see?

    Feel me sweetheart, if you cannot see,
    Keep me embracing if you cannot talk,
    I shall whisper in your heart, I couldn’t tell,
    Let me crawl slowly, I cannot walk! (Report) Reply

    A great truth expressed in nicely written melodious verses.
    Once we discover one's inner beauty, the outside takes on a fantastic glow. (Report) Reply

    Very nice poem, Cynthia! Congrats on being poet of the day! But unfortunately, there are many professions where outward appearance is more important and it's a question of survival, of daily bread. In such cases, talking of inner beauty makes no sense. (Report) Reply

    What is inside counts and will clearly show

    A true description of charm. Thanks for the poem.
    10 for it.

    And lest we forget: Do not let your adorment be that of the external braiding of the hair, nor the putting on of gold ornaments, but let it be of the secret person of the heart. Many scriptures like this one, I'm not sure where they are and don't really want to take time to look it up... just because, if that was seed sown in your heart and it took root and grew, you'll recall it too, If not, maybe better left alone.
