A poem based on a true story about a man- NOT ME.

He was a dark handsome Italian man.
Women were crazy about him but
he went with a woman who could
never win a beauty contest.

On the contrary, she might be
classed as having a weight problem,
with very heavy body needing a help
in getting in and out of a car.

Men whispered and women gossiped,
"Why a man would select a woman
no man might wish to have?"
When asked by a bold lady,
He replied,

"I had a wife, a real beauty;
the day I found her with my friend,
I almost killed her and my friend.
Ever since that day I hate beauty.

Now I have a woman, not a beauty.
She has the real inner beauty.
She loves me and makes me so happy.
I trust her and love her truly.

I will always hate so-called beauty.
A deadly poison in a bottle of beauty"

That man was so right.
Outer looks could be very deceiving.
Never get impressed by the outer looks
or reject someone for the outer looks;
take your time to know the inner self,
avoid the poison in a bottle of beauty.

Not all beautiful bottles contain poison.
Any bottle can contain the deadly poison.
