Beauty From Within

Nithya Venkat enjoys writing about nature and different aspects of life in the form of poetic verses.

beauty in the eyes that see

beauty in the eyes that see

Beauty is not on the outside; it is something that you find deep down inside your heart and soul.

This poem reflects true beauty in the real sense -

Beauty lies deep within,

It’s not on your face, nor on your skin,

Beauty shows in your kind words and smiles,

How you make your life worthwhile.

Beauty is there in kind acts of charity,

Beauty is present when you give to the needy,

Beauty means love, care, warm tender smiles,

Beauty is there when you walk the extra mile.

The radiant beauty is in, your grace,

Your warmth, the care, and your embrace,

Your timely help to the people in need,

That bring out smiles, happiness and belonging indeed.

Can’t you realize, don’t you see,

Beauty is there in you and me,

Feel it in your heart and believe,

Beauty is not what everyone perceives.

Beauty lies deep within,

Way beyond your outer skin.

Beauty - Deep Inside

Beauty has many definitions

Born out of what people see

But one thing I know for sure

Beauty shines in you and me

True beauty lies deep inside

Deep inside your heart and soul

Does not matter what color or race

Beauty is there to embrace

IT reminds me of the old saying, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder." Very deep poetic words but so much truth is within the lines.
