Beauty is where your heart takes you;
where you can enjoy life.
Beauty is where your heart can help, or be helped.
It is the kindness inside you that you know you have.
It’s also where you can meet new friends;
places you feel safe and loved are too, beautiful.
Beauty is friendships that you have that are honest and true.
Beauty is something the blind can see and the deaf can hear.
Beauty is anywhere you can live and love.
Beauty is anywhere you can fall and anywhere you can rise.
Beauty is when your love is abundant
and fears aren’t there.
Beauty is everywhere!

This poem was written by my youngest, Jessica (Jess) Hairston when she was 11 years old. What a great perspective she had about “Beauty”, and coming from one who was so young.
