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.

'Beautiful
D Connolly,
As the saying goes, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder.'
Your poem shows the outward working of a soul. Your line,
"What makes a person beautiful
isn't found in their disguise
it's in their heart
it's their very soul
That's where their beauty lies."
Your friend must have qualities which are focusing up
and out into the world and people around her.
Some people are like that. This poem was a reminder
of where our focus should be not on ourselves but on others.
Live and learn to live in this world of humanity outwardly.
Thanks for this reminder of how to live.
Blessings,
Kathy

thank-you very much :)
This is a very positive poem Dani, that should make anyone feel good. Despair only creates vulnerability, but humour can be a powerful antidote. I found this after a stroke left me having to learn to read and write again.

Beth sounds lovely but sadly nice people with big hearts get hurt a lot. This poem is so lovely and true... Beauty comes from somewhere deeper.

good! you are beautiful :)
Both you and your friend have incredibly loving hearts.. you both care, you both share. That's how society should be.

These days, seems caring and gentleness is seen as a weakness. Your Beth deserves more, far more.

Maybe not only can you give her such wonderful support and poems like this, you could share a wrapped hug of, 'Hey, I'm Beth.. I'm a human emotion on feet.'

An inspiring post.

Hi Nemo! Thank-you for reading :) :)
WOW! WOW! WOW! This is a supreme gift to your friend! Wouldn't we all love to have one person in the whole wide world that saw us thru these eyes. I'm sure your friend is deeply honored & I hope she can stay beautiful in all these ways without letting the harshness & disappointments of life dull her shine. Excellent details & rhyme.
