What is Beauty?

What is beauty to you?  I feel that I can find beauty in many different areas of our lives. For example, this afternoon on campus I simply held the door open for someone right after me. This I would do no matter what. It just happened to be an older gentleman, as in the age of grandparents. He is an Irishman and had such beautiful quotes to share with me. I was not expecting a major thank you. I feel that we all should be kind and open doors, etc for anyone. Just basic kindness. He mentioned Emily Dickenson. She was a fabulous writer of poetry. I feel she was a fabulous artist and was just beautiful! This gentleman shared with me the beauty of words we can share with others. Our words can help us help one another, lead someone or just cheer them up! It is amazing what we can do with words to be beautiful. Over the weekend I did not use my words wisely and really hurt someone who loves and cares for me. These are things we need to think about with what we say. Remember  words can not be taken back. Use the beauty of words, whether it be poetry, a letter, a book, short story or song. It can be the most beautiful thing we share with one another.

Poetry-My Soul

Where oh where did my soul go? I feel lost and saddened. Like death appearing over me in darkness and pain. The light is shining up above but for many lightyears ahead of me. The dark pain feels like a knife running through my skin to my blood. The blood inside my body burns with a screaming pain. My bones are wanting to escape my body of suffering.
