Appearance

We place much
on
appearance.
Less
on
what it conceals.

Does a beautiful face
in equal measure
a heart
reveal?

And those with beautiful hearts,
encased within life's
less than idyllic form.

To know them,
is true to say,

a gift without cheap wrapping!
A no lesser
gift indeed!

By appearance and a shallow wanting
we so easily,
can be,
deceived!
