Inner Beauty

Inner Beauty prose poem

Photo by Conal Gallagher

Some days, I sit and dream of being something beautiful.
I dream of being the sweet flower in every person’s garden,
Or the little butterfly that every child loves.
I dream of being the magnificent peacock, flaunting every gorgeous feather,
Or even the picturesque mountain scene that is searched for every day.
But then, I realize from time to time that the outer things will fade away,
That inner beauty is purer than anything that is on the outside.
It is purer than the clearest waters of the ocean,
Or even the most precious diamond.
But, in order to have inner beauty, my actions must reflect my words.
My thoughts must reflect my heart.
For soon enough, the soul’s inner beauty will surpass anything considered beautiful on the surface.
