Preface

When we enter our adulthood we make friends and with a few of them we might have a relationship also and with one of them it may culminate in a serious one which might become a relationship for the whole life by accepting the person as our life partner. But how to find out the inner person in him or her? That is the quest undertaken in this poem. Only after knowing the person fully it makes sense to go for a life time relationship because life time relationship is a commitment between two people.

Poetry type

I have tried to compose this poem in a rythmic form and first line of each of the stanza is only three words. Further, no line goes beyond five words. I will be happy to call this a three-five rythmic poetry if my fellow poets accept the nomenclature.

Inner beauty

“Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.”

- Kahlil Gibran

I shall stay till end

The outer beauty,
So attractive and appealing.
The appearances,
So stylish and appeasing.

Like a thing,
Packed in golden foils.
Like a thing,
Wrapped in shining oils.

Shall I stay,
Or just like that leave.
Without exploring,
What lies beneath.

Choice is mine,
But one should take chance.
You can't judge it,
In a single glance.

Let me delve,
Deeper in my friend.
If it is really worth,
I shall stay till end.

      Short, sweet and clear; and the making of a good friendship. It takes time to forge a good relationship.

      It's always worth getting to know someone before judging them. All too often we form an opinion of someone based on their outward appearance, and we are usually wrong.

      I loved this poem Umesh which reflects the need to never give too much value as to what is on the surface, otherwise we miss the true value beneath.

      When I read your wonderful poem, Umesh, what comes to mind is “All that glitters isn’t gold” and “beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” or maybe more accurately, beauty is in the mind of the beholder. If we judge beauty on such a superficial level, then we totally overlook most of that person’s worth such as their mind, character, values, and capacity to love! It seems to me that we’re sure missing a lot! “Looks can be deceiving,” another great quote which comes to mind. Your thought provoking poem makes us realize just how much we miss when we judge someone only by their physical appearance. I really enjoyed your poem and its great message.

      I like the notion of delving deeper. We need to explore what is below the surface. There are attractive exteriors but people can be ugly inside and that’s hard to fix. If you value what’s inside the outer beauty grows on you. Plus there’s always makeup, surgery, and other external fixes.
