Revoke Beauty within …..!

Beauty about which they boast in Ads & TV
Is not divine but a deviation, the one which is only skin deep

The real beauty is what lies within, intensely deep,
And to know it, deep in your heart you have to peep.

It is there, where it magnificently resides, exudes,
And vibrates when one’s mood is full of gratitude;

Beauty is not a physical existence or hardware.
It is the divine sensations & feelings, ideally software.

Beauty is a Goddess; it is felt in nature & in divine work of artistry
It also often finds expression as in a beautiful painting or poetry.

To every human being Beauty is God’s divine blessing & charity,
But looking for it only through our eyes and baser instincts,
We totally miss its magnanimity, profoundness & divinity,
And is possibly the cause of all sinister activities & criminality ….!

    inner beauty permeates to the outside and does not require paints to beautify it further…very well portrayed Sir…

    I recall certain quotations coined by me towards ‘beauty’:
    “Let not beauty defeat your duty”
    “Looking beauty is like licking fruity”
    “Beauty needs to be a bit cutie”
    “A beauty may travel even W.T.”
    That’s over at present !
    Better kindly accede to a few typographical suggestions:-
    Use of Capital letters beginning every subsequent line in the poem; &
    Make “one’s” instead of “ones” in the 3rd stanza.

    A beautiful poetic imagery indeed !

      Thanks for your comment & your beautiful lines on beauty.
      I would like to add.
      Beauty what most address is it beauty?
      or something else in disguise for beauty …..

      Regarding Capital letters at the start of every line, I have often an ongoing tussle with spell check. I put a capital it says it should be small, It says it should be capital when I say it should be small. This matter really needs to be resolved. The other correction done.

        @Vishvnand, Thanks, Sir ! As in
        text books, other literary poetic works of English writers, I have mostly
        found writers beginning every line of poetry with capital letter as a
        practice in vogue, though its grammatic weightage has not come to
        my reading, as yet. Perhaps it’s a mere practice to let the poem look
        like a poem instead of prose. Spell-check clause may also appear to
        be bilingual on this aspect as also mentioned by you. What then ?
        age quod agis ?

          Thank you so much for your very meaningful response and in particular to acquaint me with phrase “Age Quod Agis ” one which I did not know and searching for its meaning have found it so delightful, deep and apt in the situation….
