Where Beauty Lies


Mary Handricken

Are you staring? Tell me why.
Do my looks, satisfy?
Are my lips plush, my eyes wide,
My cheeks blushed or my nose lined?
Do you think I'm a goddess with beautiful hair
Or a perfect figure with skin creamy clear?

Who cares about these things?!
There's much more to me.
If all you see is the outside
You don't really see.
Because I am a woman,
The truest kind.
Truth is my sense
And I don't let pride blind.

Well go on... walk on by
But before you do
I invite you to stop
A minute or two.
Quickly then,
I will gather and pick
Out each thought
That has you tricked.
And then I'll scatter them
Into the wind
So you never see a woman
The same again.
