It's sad those poems as they seem to illustrate what is so common in society, i.e., that people are primarily judged by their looks. I am not perfect; however, knowing that beauty comes from within - and first and foremost in my opinion! - I have the gift of inner seeing, that is, upon one's heart! I posted on March 6, 2012 about that! Seeing One's Heart: http://xpressyouressence.blogspot.ca/2012/03/perhaps-analogous-to-heart-shaped.html ;) <3
Yes Elly people are attracted by outer beauty which is only skin deep.
Yes,ma'am all look at outer beauty.Nice.
Yes Sarala. It is sad. Is'nt it?
Outer beauty will be always be winning from the inner beauty, but when someone is getting older the outer beauty will fade, but the inner beauty will be still there.
You have very rightly said that in old age outer beauty will no more be there. Inner beauty is permanent.
It's so sad that often it's only outer beauty is the only thing people can see.
Yes Georgia, it is very sad. This is human nature and it is unfortunate.
