The Inner Beauty

Image result for inner beauty

The poem below is  inspired from the quote that I just read,” Beauty is only skin deep and the world is full of thin skinned people.”

It is but superficial,

The crackle and the frizzle,

The over the top decoration,

Like the icing on a cake.

Look through it all,

It may be dull and insipid,

On your shoulders the mantle rests,

To make it right and interesting.
