Inner Beauty

Can you respect my opinion even though we don’t agree,

There’s nothing more attractive than intellect,boldness, kindness, understanding and respect to me,

Physical beauty is great,

But it can’t replace any of those traits,

You can find the most outwardly beautiful person full of hate,

We can debate forever about inner beauty versus outer beauty,

In the end I’m still going to go with what works for me,

You see I love outwardly beautiful things,

But what brings me the most joy is the love and emotions that come from within a human being,

I didn’t begin life with these thoughts,

I prayed and I prayed and God brought me a new perspective on life and everything in it,

You don’t look at a wrapped gift from the outside,

You try to see what’s in it

How long have you been writing poetry? -Over 20+years. How did you first discover poetry? - I discovered poetry by accident around 8 or 9 years old. I was taking a science test and there was a question about the moon. My answer was in kind of poetic form and the teacher thought it was great. My answer was " The moon is like a flashlight and the sun turns it on". After that I kept writing poetry and started to read a lot of books. I also listen to a bunch of music, all kinds of music. Mainly R&B music. I put song lyrics in the exact same category as poetry. When did you first get anything published? -I was 12, a family member was in a contest at work. She was 16 years old working at a clothing store in the mall. It was a tshirt contest. They had to write a slogan or a poem. I wrote it she won, I got nothing except a bigger interest in poetry. I still remember some of the poem " Thank you expiration, For all your dedication, Throughout the years, You have dried tears, You've always been there, To protect and care" . that's all I remember. Why do you write? - 1. It helps me with stress. 2. I like being heard. 3. I love poetry I see some of my poetry like abstract art. I know what I'm feeling when I write them but I want the meaning to be open to interpretation. Also poetry as art to me not competition, every poet that loves poetry is great. I just love to write poetry, everything I write isn't about me personally. I just try to think of how I would feel in different situations. So even though every poem isn't about me it's still my feelings.

    Yes absolutely!! Beauty outside is good, but that’s just the wrapping…

    The heart and soul is the gift … so that would be more important. That would be the area you have to make sure is what you want. ✌️😘
