 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Skin Deep

We judge others just how they look,
Since appearance is bait and hook;
For a man can never deny,
A pretty girl catches his eye.

The charm and beauty can deceive,
For character that we perceive;
Of having such beauty and grace,
With wearing a mask on their face.

This kind of beauty will not last,
Since it will be fading very fast;
But women who honor the Lord,
They will be treasured and adored.

God judges beauty in the heart,
Everlasting and never part;
When you show God love and respect,
Your beauty He will not neglect.

So always be gentle and kind,
The Lord will beautify your mind;
That will flow down into your heart,
And glowing outward to impart.
