True Beauty

True Beauty
by
Macie Snow

What is beauty?
Is it your face?
Or that coat of make-up
covering up your face.
Is it your body?
Or the flashy clothes you wear?
Is it your hair?
Or that careless style
That took you hours to perfect
Is it your personality?
Or that fake laugh
covering up the true feelings
What is true beauty?
I believe it is the heart
Whether you love others
more than yourself,
when you would be willing
to sacrifice your make-up and flashy things
to feed the hungry.
When you live truthfully
true beauty is found
in the heart.
