When I was a boy, I would always hear scary things in the news and my mother would say to me, "Always look for the helpers. Everywhere you look you will always find people helping." - Fred Rogers


True beauty rests within in the heart.
Within the deep unknown.
You believe that people rest in the fences.
Not even caring enough to cross over into the suffering.
You only see the skin, the eyes, and hair.
If you were to go inside their mind, what would you discover?

The seas of suffering, the soul of gold.
The hurt that's been there for so, so long.
You'd see the endless cries of the imperfect.
The surface of the ocean is just an entrance to the deep.
But since the surface isn't appealing it means the depths must not exist.
So says you, so says many of the blinded.

What if people looked inside of the shells?
This perforated cocoon containing pure beauty?
What if they just took the time to find the gold?
Hidden in the heart. Washed away with your lies?
Just go ahead and laugh while their brilliant soul shrieks.
True beauty is within the "uglies and freaks."


The author's comments:
This poem is dedicated to all of those who are judged by their appearance. Remember, never give up, no matter what the blinded may say, true beauty lies within you.

"heaven's not a place that you go when you die. it's that feeling in time when you feel alive."

The honesty expressed through this poem without the need of bigger words is great! Very relatable and I think this is a consolation of those who arent as involved with the in crowd. Love this idea! Great job.

I've read all your work and I must say, you could really be a successful writer. I hope that when I'm older I'll see your work published and famous. Keep it up!
