Inner Architecture

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.

skies

I know from the 

rose and its thorns

the more beautiful the soul is

in my life

they are the 

maps to follow for the 

fallen passerby

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 

you finally…
