If there was one thing that she had learned
throughout her life and tribulations
is that she had a heart and soul big enough
that could hold both her pain and happiness.
But she then realized
that in life you can’t wait to be something
but to accept your true self
appreciating only the beauty that comes from within
and the feeling of weights upon your shoulders

This was a free verse poem I’ve written about Inner Beauty in collaboration with my good friend Riya, whom I have known for quite some time now, and I must say, she’s a fantastic writer so please check out her blog as well as her poem! We’ve also collaborated before on previous posts which can be found on both my blog and her blog.
