If Only

If Only

A Poem by ❀ Gabriela ❀

True beauty lies in all of us. If only we could see...

If only we could see
That true beauty lies within

It's not about who's rich or poor,
It's not who's thick or thin.

It's deep within the purest hearts
And in the truest love.

Purity, compassion.
Not money or fashion
Is what true beauty is made of.

It can be found in each of us
And if we'd look with our hearts, and not just our eyes
We'd find that every one of us
Is beautiful inside.

I'll admit that I didn't spot the rhyme scheme until I went over it a second time - and then I was just completely taken aback when I realized that you managed to pull off a poem with such natural flow and no awkwardness /while/ holding to a specific rhyme scheme. It's much easier to free-verse poems when speaking of such a subject, after all - but you didn't feel the need to dabble in that.

Skillful use of inverted sentences, anaphora, etc. You demonstrate such ease of writing. :)

Charming piece! Do keep writing. :)

Hi Gabby... I liked this one as well... very good. It’s not really our fault, we are hard wired to notice the “outside” ... you know... find the signs that allow us to further the human race... mundane stuff like that but you put it much nicer here !!

Thank you! :D
You're right. True beauty is on the inside.
If Only a lot of people can see that
in this world of materialism and vanity.

A beautiful poem.
Yes, beauty lies inside. It is a little sad, that it aint acknowledged as much as it should be.
Anyway, great flow, great content, great poem :)

Yeah. Beauty is only skin deep but ugly goes right to the bone. Vanity is the ugliest of all. Wonderful write.
