Inside You

Inside You

A Poem by Emily Robinson

A flower arrangement is sometimes like you
rays of sunshine hit the petals and cast a glow.
The beauty within, is waiting to be known.
I first looked on the outside, and found it becoming. Radiant.
The sun cast it's beams of light, causing peripheral to wilt.
But the SON casts His' light on you, radiating the inside beauty.
Truly, it is the inside that counts, that lasts... and never wilts away. Nor fades into dusk.
To me; real beauty is the heart the Christ radiated, when you first took His' hand.
Beauty never comes from the outward appearance,nor from what ones does to please others,
nor from what one does to be well liked by others.
But radiant are those who give their all to God with full submission. Pure heart.

I appreciate your comment, "Anima Inspired". This poem was actually written about ten years ago, when I was twelve years old... So I admit that it does lack a lot of rhythm or skill to the writing.

Beautiful writing...great imagery. I think that the problems that I had with this piece were in punctuation and line breaks, which both break the flow up a little. There were many places where periods were used instead of commas, and that stops the reader, forcing an unnatural break in the flow of the piece.
