INNER BEAUTY (c) By Polly Guerin

Inner beauty far outlasts

Its silent message does not blast

But radiates with good intentions

Affirms with wisdom, and did I mention

The more we focus on inner beauty

Genuine peace and balance is our duty

With comforting words of praise confirming

Elevate those in need without sermoning

Calm, cultivate, considerate learning

Giving comfort where hearts are burning

Lift up those from sadness or recent loss

Gently stroke their story without force

And stir up feelings of renewed pride

Never let ambition or happiness slide

Encourage strength and inner glow

With life-confirming words I go

About the day with heart on fire

An inspiring truth is what I desire

Responding eagerly to positive sound

The world is made better all around

Stylish clothes may outwardly renew

But inner beauty is forever true.
