Beholder Of Beauty

“The fact is, I’m not sure if you could handle
someone with intellect and a backbone.”

Perhaps if you took the time to appreciate someone for who they are instead of how they look, maybe you’d see that beauty lies within. But I’m not sure if you’re capable of understanding such depth. Maybe you were never taught to see beyond skin. Or, maybe you just don’t care. The fact is, I’m not sure if you could handle someone with intellect and a backbone. Someone that doesn’t need you. Someone beautiful — not just on the outside, but on in the inside as well. And while you judge and sneer, the rest of the world sees you for what you are.

This is pretty relevant
as much today as it was
when I wrote it.

And that’s very unfortunate.

  1. But you know what? There’s a pot for every lid. If we all had the same taste, only certain people would be desirable. Instead, there are people who appreciate a backbone and those who do not. There are people who have one and those that do not. See? Puzzle fits. It’s all about finding the right piece, though.
