True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.” Audrey Hepburn
Beautiful poem by Paul
“True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.” Audrey Hepburn
There were times,
more than she could remember,
that a voice would say
take your beauty and trade,
however, while she valued
her external beauty
for beauty defined her,
far more did she value her
inner architecture being
a foundation for all that
seeks the good and the wise,
a real beauty.

To do with you what spring does with the cherry trees.”
― Pablo Neruda
I know from the wisdom
passed on from generation
why family becomes your will to survive
I know what miseries are
and what lesson they teach
from this topsy-turvy life
to reach the sky
I know from
the scorching sun
the parched earth
that it’s always
I know from the
rose and its thorns
the more beautiful the soul is
the more difficult
is to occupy
I know from the scars
in my life
they are the
maps to follow for the
I know the trails
and tribulations are
nothing but a litmus test
for my soul to
so it can thrive
I know I have been through
defeats and deception
to sieve the friends
from just another passerby
I know from the heartbreaks
there are stops before
