Some Would Say

Some would say your clothing’s odd, it clashes in its hue;

Others think your garments loud, and cringe at sight of you.

Others still go to great lengths to deny affinity there,

While those who know you least of all will often stop and stare.

But they don’t see, past ruffled cloth, the beauty of your heart,

Or notice with their blunted sense the qualities  apart

From which your worth is lost in sundry traits which can’t be seen,

But felt with soul and mind and gentle spirit in between.

  1. very nice! Love the last line!

  2. Your pictures are so vivid and alive. I love how your words weave a story line that is just perfect for every persona you see behind the camera lense. I can think of no one better suited to praise the Lord’s creation

    Beautiful post! Love the pic! The message you shared in this piece brought a Scripture to mind: “For man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart!” I Samuel 16:7 It’s truly what’s on the inside that counts! 🙂 Thank you so much for visiting my blog, and subscribing to it! God bless you!
