look in the mirror

appreciate your beauty

understand what lies beneath your surface.

it’s not:

the material you are in nor the makeup brand on your skin,

the brand of shoes on your feet or even

how pretty you look on a scale of one to 10.

it’s your soul that outshines,

outlives,  outer appearances.

we age, we gain a few grey hairs, wrinkles scatter around our face

our appearance always changes.

your soul stays forever

and is

worth more then a pot of  gold.
