Beautiful

Beautiful

A Poem by D. Connolly
"

What makes a person beautiful

"

What makes a person beautiful

Is the ability to laugh

To make the ones around them

Happier on their paths

It also in the way their smile

Lights up the very room

Dispels the negativity

And takes away the gloom

What makes a person beautiful

Is their ability to care

To wake up every single day

With love they want to share

Its how they give their everything

Though it may not be returned

The courage to rebuild a bridge

Of trust after its been burned

What makes a person beautiful

Isn't found in their disguise

Its in their heart

Its their very soul

That's where their beauty lies

Author's Note

D. Connolly
For Beth, who asked me to write a poem for her when she was feeling ugly, unloved and unworthy because some loser boy broke up with her (I disliked him from the start). She has an amazing ability to open her heart to everyone she meets, and gives chance after chance, and unfortunately that makes her vulnerable. But that is a strength. She has a giant heart and a trusting soul and I am so protective of her.

Very true! We sometimes need such writes to understand the beauty of a person.
The courage to rebuild a bridge
Of trust after it's been burned.
Thank you for sharing..

Thank-you so much for your time Bala
This poem is amazing, Dani! I was smiling and nodding as I was reading it.
And for Beth; F**k that guy. A loser boy does not deserve a beautiful soul :)

You're absolutely right! Glad the loser is out of the picture :)
Truth presented whole with no allusions but beautiful advice and words in it and their own right.
Vunerable is good and attractive in the same way that arrogance and immodesty is not.

thank-you, I agree
Just the ones who stop to say hello.
The ones who do something for you without asking.

I think lots of things make people beautiful, but the ever lasting things are the way they love othe.. read more
I feel as if I've read this before but forgot to review..
We've set quite different standards for what is or isn't beautiful.. But true beauty is what you portrayed here!
These are so uplifting words to say to someone when they aren't feeling their best!
Nicely penned!
