True beauty
is born of a light
that transcends
the eternal darkness
of a forever night.
It shall call to those who in truth seek
not the glory
the adulation
or the awe of another,
but the crisp cool feel
of contentment,
of being whole within oneself.
Able to give to others
the gift within,
of true caring
as you breach all walls
in order to reach out
and share that light.
All shall know
for in that instant
that you cause another to smile
their eyes echoing happiness
lips pursing in internal bliss
they too will shine
they too will learn
growing in a heartbeat
the light will go on
never leaving
true beauty
shall be face nor form
it shall be held within the soul
gifted with a word
echoing in the songs
that may yet go unheard
still it remains
in the gift
of the heart,
in the wealth
of a smile,
true beauty
lives on
within all
who live
humbly and honestly
