Spin Cycle: True Beauty

This weeks Spin Cycle is on appearances. Since I tend to see the way people are rather than how they appear, I thought I would share a poem which sums up the difference between what is on the outside and what is on the inside:

Beauty they say is only skin deep
but why then do we want to keep

The skin we see has learned to hide
the beautiful soul that is trapped inside

Only with the heart can we truly see
to break the skin and set it free

So learn to see with your heart today
and find a way to free souls from sleep

This is so great! And a really good reminder to those of us who do tend to make snap judgments. Thanks for sharing your poem!

Beauty/looks can really trick us. Seeing with your heart is the way to go, but many of us have a hard time with it.

This poem is great. I think it sums things up perfectly.

I did go and read your old post. I loved how you took it down even to the molecular level. What great posts.

Oh and Thanks for the comment. :)

Amen to that! It's only when we get beyond the outside package that we can truly appreciate someone's beauty. You're linked!
