Beautiful -poem
« on: February 21, 2021, 10:40:10 PM »

Beauty is in the eyes
of the beholder,
It was first said
many years ago.

But when life
takes its toll
the eyes don't see
as clear the beauty,
in the world or
the beauty of ones soul.

The years mar the
memory of man.
Nothing can fade the
Beauty God created
in man's soul.

Yet, not all have
the ears to understand
what the eyes cannot see,
and lose sight of the beauty
behind each heartbeat.

I was born and raised wearing hand me down shoes and clothes-but I was richer by far than those who thought themselves 'my betters.'  I'd take love over riches and fame any day.
