Inner BeautyAlthough outward beauty may be seen
all painted on with a brush so fair
its shallowness can be revealed
in our actions unaware,
But inner beauty is much more rare
and it comes from God above
It is shown in how we act
and how we show His love.
Like an oyster in the ocean
its outer shell so plain and dull
but when you look inside of it
theres a pearl so beautiful.
I hope to be like the oyster
when you look inside you'll see
a heart so warm and beautiful
and see God's love inside of me.
