About the Poem

This poem is about looking within ourselves and others to see the beauty within. To share that beauty with others. To look past what's outside and see what lies within.

Look Within

There is so much beauty in
This wondrous, blue rose
If only we could capture it
Within our very souls

If we could take its beauty
And apply the glow within
Search a little deeper
In the soul beneath our skin

Take what it does stand for
And shed its love abroad
Don't hide the glow within you
But share the love of God

You know you can't touch beauty
Without it rubbing off on you
And spreading it to others
In the kindness that you do

There lies within each one of us
The beauty like this rose
When it's used in touching others
Then its beauty overflows

Thats what I'm talking about! I loved it! I really appreciate clear inspiration without trying to be so deep that you can't understand it. Write and make it plain so them that read it may run with it. Thats my own paraphrase of Habakkuk 2:2 Keep up the good work.

I did so enjoy the poem and would like to place it in a weekly Christian newsletter that I write. I'd love to share the poem with my readers with your permission. Sometimes we get so lost and forget the true beauty that lies within us. God has enriched us with a beauty eyes cannot behold.
