    she was beautiful
    but she had an ugly soul
    that was her downfall

    I have seen this haiku, walking on the beach, in the mall and at my workplace. What truth...what depth.

    Keep flowin my sistah. I love this profound poem.

    Joyce..thank you..pretty is as pretty does....but it's what is inside that matters...and if you are beautiful on the inside, it will reflect on the outside..I appreciate your comments..

    A...thanks...and yes...just because the package has pretty paper, doesn't mean you'll like the present inside...

    Rich..I have to agree...so much pressure is placed on people to "look" beautiful....thankfully we don't all see "beauty" with the same eyes..

    Coco...yesss....you have a point...we make the choice don't we...
