"It's not your appearance that matters, but how you improve the lives of others."
Hidden Beauty: Beyond Appearances
We live in a society obsessed with appearances. From social media to mainstream media, everything seems to suggest that what we see on the outside is all that really matters. However, if we scratch beneath that thin layer of superficiality, we'll discover a far richer and more complex universe in the soul of each person.
It's easy to judge others by how they look or by the image they project. But have you ever considered that the person who seems the toughest may actually be the most tender? Or that the one who appears indifferent might be the one most in need of a kind gesture? Sometimes, people build walls not to keep others out, but to see who cares enough to knock them down.
So, I invite you to be the kind of person who looks beyond the surface. To improve the lives of others not just with grand actions, but with small acts of kindness that can make all the difference. Because at the end of the day, you won't be remembered for how you looked, but for how you made others feel. And that, my friend, is the true beauty that can't be hidden.
Wish for Depth
Beneath my skin, behind the guise,
I aim to be more, under these skies.
I want to break this mere illusion
that keeps me in a state of confusion.
Not just to be what eyes can see,
but to embody what's really me.
I long to give without a fee,
and live in others selflessly.
Though life, it seems, sets up a test
with its focus on outward best,
I wish to be the one to find
what lies beyond the outward mind.
Sometimes tough, sometimes tender,
my heart seeks out winter's splendor
to find, within its silent face,
the spring that's my soul's saving grace.
