Poem Commentary

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

BEAUTY

There is beauty all around. If you look it can be found. It's all in your perception.
Upon further inspection, the beauty you see can be an act of deception.
Look for the beauty of the spirit and the mind. When you find it,
 you will find beauty of the rarest kind.

It can change and redefine as you grow older. Beauty of the flesh will fade away
 but beauty of the mind and spirit will get brighter each day. Allow positive
energy and light in your world. Chasing the darknessw away with rays of sun.
Rays that reveal in your speech, your eyes, your attitude. Bringing light and joy
that can change any mood.

Beauty is an abstract concept. It changes from person to person. I enjoy the beauty I
see everyday. The rising sun, a beautiful flower, a rainbow up above, or a sunny rain
shower. Alittle kitten fluffy and gray chasing my blues away with his antics.
Beauty is not the personal property of romantics.

All can be made aware. Sometimes it is important to take some time and share.
The beauty in your life. The pain that cuts like a knife. There is beauty in pain,
because the other side produces a rainbow after the rain. Like a child being born,
 you can show up fresh and brand new. Eyes that see things differently and a
faith that is strengthened and renewed.

Beauty is like a diamond of the rarest kind produced from a lump of coal or refined
by fire like gold.

Take your blinders off!
There is beauty all 
around. The most beautiful thing of all is
BEAUTY can be found.
