She was beauty-

She was beauty-


She tried to find the beauty,
People claim, in her they see;
That light which brightens hearts,
And set some souls ablaze;
She stared at her reflection,
With every waking dawn;
And spent the day dejected,
Cause the light, she never saw;
But the beauty was embedded,
In the window of her teeth;
In the way high voice rose high,
When she fluttered at her speech;
In the tightening of her lips,
When she hears of injustice;
In the widening of her eyes,
At the sound of Poetry;
She tried to find the beauty,
People claim in her they see-
In her soul, it was embedded
In every cell of her being.

  1. Wow, well written poem Ameena. I’m glad she was able to see the beauty others saw in her. I was afraid throughout the poem that she wouldn’t see what others saw, and that would’ve been unfortunate.

  2. Hey Ameena. Bravo for seeing the inner beauty. My husband believes that the most beautiful woman in the world (on the exterior) becomes ugly by doing ugly things. So glad he thinks so.
    Have a lovely day, my friend.
