The Art Of Beauty

Real beauty is not found in clusters of cells
Even if perfectly arranged
Beauty of that nature
Often fades
And withers with time

Instead it is found in something that exists
Beyond the realm of mere biology
And is Eternal
It is found within the spiritual
The beauty of a soul

Real beauty is not found in weight or size
Gravity is never stable
And can turn from being kind
To being malicious
At a whim

Instead it is found by that which can not be measured
How does one measure the joy of another?
Or the pain of another?
True beauty can not be measured
For one can not weigh a soul

Instead true beauty exists everywhere
When you unveil your eyes to superficiality
And see the world with compassionate gazes
That look beyond this realm
Of things that are temporary

Real beauty resides within a simple smile
Warm with affection
When your world is collapsing
That smile is beautiful because it feeds hope
And makes you feel more alive

Real beauty can be found in words
That pour forth from a beautiful heart
Words that shall live for an eternity
Because they penetrate your soul
And make it blossom

Real beauty is found in love
That is unconditional and eternal
That stands firm in the face of hardship
It is this level of love that makes men immortal
And humanity divinely beautiful

Artist's Description

This poem is inspired by the Egyptian notion of beauty, represented by the heiroglyph Nefer.
Nefer was depicted as a heart with a windpipe.
To the Egyptians true beauty was not just physical – true beauty was immortal – the Beauty of a soul that pleased the Gods.
