Is real beauty skin deep?
Or is it from the outside, just like gleaming gold?
Is it blue eyes and blonde hair?
Or is it from the kindness one person holds?
Does beauty come from the way one smiles?
Or is it from the way one walks?
Does it matter if one doesn't
have long red fingernails and
does it matter if one isn't smart?
Each human being is different
in each unique way. That is the
significance of beauty in itself today!
