Illusion of Beauty Versus Ugly
 
physical beauty is an illusion
transitory in nature
what appears as physical beauty 
can change in a heartbeat
actions of an individual
reveals ugliness or beauty
regardless of physical attributes
 
have you ever met someone
at first glance 
beautiful to your eyes
in a short time
unkind actions, abusive speech
at second glance  
beauty has turned to ugly
 
 
 
too often one who did not
possess a physical beauty
when first glanced upon
through the loving actions
of their heart and mind
soon physical appearance
like a caterpillar 
becomes the butterfly 
resplendence of the inner soul 
becomes the outer beauty
 
 
look not with your physical eyes
if you are looking for genuinine beauty
physical appearance is a mirage
true beauty is often hidden
in a protective shell of unsightliness
requires time and a second look
