About the Poem

Beauty isn't always what's on the outside. It's what's inside that counts.

Within Me

Scarlet lips as red as a rose,
perfect hips in a seductive pose.
On the outside this is what I may be,
but what about looking at the heart within me.

Long black hair, surrounding my face,
baby blue eyes and full of grace.
This is what most men chase,
but my soul and feeling cannot be erased.

Long, untouched legs with a snug fitting skirt,
a short and sexy tube top shirt,
I take my looks with little pride,
for what I care about is what's inside.

They say that these looks are a sensation,
that I am one of God's best creations,
But all I really want is for you to see,
all the good that is within me.

You expressed so beautifully what I've so often felt. What we look like is a gift from our Creator; what we are inside is our own creation to give away.

I read your poem and found it incredible. Then, I clicked the little more button because I couldn't believe how good you are. All of your poems are absolutely inspirational. If you're not already considering being a poet at least part time, you should. I'm just absolutely blown away.

I REALLY LIKE THIS ONE YOU HIT ON VERY TRUE FACTS. IF PEOPLE LOOK BEYOND HIPS AND LEGS AND A PRETTY FACE THEY WOULD BE OKAY. TRULLY THERE IS MORE TO WOMEN THEN JUST WHAT THEY SEE.
