Joshua Akinwande


Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder
A common saying decoded from the look of a man
Of a truth, genuine and true beauty is beyond what the eyes can see
Only the heart can feel
Glows with such power, even the ‘blind’ will perceive
Regardless of our status, rich or poor
Aboriginality, the language or cultural background
We all can see and perceive this inner beauty with the same view
An advice for my fellow members of the brotherhood,
Always by pass the look go straight inward
From the inward, outward appearance can be well appreciated
And advice for every being
As you take time to make up the physical beauty
Create more time to nurture the inner one
For when the inward being is ugly
Outward projection, nothing but a fake

Some people say, beauty is skin deep. That's quite true. But we all know that true beauty is beyond the look but a sweet spirit, kind soul, wonderful heart.Authors comment
