Shades Of Beauty

Shades Of Beauty

1 min 7.1K 1 min 7.1K

I see beauty in the broken window,

For it doesn't reflect back the light,

But refracts the light to swallow the darkness.


I see beauty of the tress in autumn,

They stand raw with all their leaves being shed,

As they wait for spring to blossom.


I see beauty in the eyes of the stray dog,

That held compassion,

Which I have missed to find in most human beings.


I see beauty in the roadside shrubs,

They still bloom, even when no one cared to water them.

I see beauty in the beggar's charity,

When he shares his food with the stray pup.


I see beauty in the broken heart,

That still loves.


I see beauty in my mamma's hand and papa's foot,

Both held the sacrifices,

To make us feel contented.


I see beauty in the musty old books,

That held the fingerprints of thousands of people.


I see beauty in the scars,

People gifted, that reminds me of times I survived.


Beauty is not about being impeccable,

Spotless and unbroken.


It is about breaking down to pieces,

And rebuilding from the scratch every single time.
