Where Eyes Cannot

Sometimes a neglected rose
Sprouts beautiful blooms
Is proof enough for me
Beauty sometimes comes
From an unexpected place.

Beauty can be hidden
Where eyes cannot see
Because our actions show
How beautiful we are.

A beautiful smile
Draws smiles in return
While a frowning face
Causes those we care for
To turn and walk away.

We can be beautiful
Even if we are not
By respecting everyone
Their hearts will tell them
We are beautiful
Even if our outward
Appearance is not.
