    BEAUTIFUL AIN'T ENOUGH

    Girl watch ya deeds,
    Cuz all you see,
    Ain't all you can have,
    This is on ya behalf;

    You are most beautiful,
    But must be careful,
    If you are Careless,
    You'll drown in sadness;

    Beautiful will harm,
    If you fold ya hands,
    Then the rain of misery,
    Will pour on your destiny;

    Beautiful ain't enough,
    If you are not tough,
    Cuz tough times,
    Will send you wild;

    Girl beautiful ain't enough,
    If you are not loved,
    And have lips to kiss,
    Nor money to feed;

    Girl you are so pretty,
    But it's a pitty,
    You cann't get married,
    See why yo are worried;

    If in beauty you are something,
    And in the society nothing,
    cuz ya attitude is stinky,
    Then you don't have beauty;

    YOu are beatiful,
    Behold, you are not wonderful,
    You maybe a queen,
    But you can never be a king.

    Just an outer shell isn't enough for man or woman. The inner beauty makes us kings and queens truly. Keep flowin, I'll keep readin.

    Wonderful piece! Beauty is not always skin deep and people need to realize this as we grow older with wisdom.

    actions reflect personality...

    if the actions are woeful...beauty doesn't reside there. skindeep depiction of beauty does not a beautiful person make. it is to the heart that determines a beautiful person.

    TEACH the things you know, MacGeo...and let the river flow.
