Beauty is.....


Story

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I've been 
And how I got to where I am

The most beautiful photo I have ever seen was a close up of the face of an elderly lady.  A face that was wrinkled and worn and a face that radiated the contentment of a life being well lived.

Her face reflected the beauty of her story.

I pray that my story will be as beautiful.

  1. I love the way you did this: light against the dark and dark against the light. It's a beautiful self-portrait and the quote is perfect. I don't think anyone really likes seeing their face get older in the mirror, though it's inevitable. Like you, I hope to live so that my "life story" looks good on me.
