Beauty is everywhere, though sometimes people fail to see it.
Beauty is everywhere, and it lives vicariously
in a simple dance, kind-hearted strangers,
who offer a smile and positivity,
and children with imperfectly-placed freckles
giggling ecstatically on the playground. The reality is that terrible
incidents happen daily, but we must remember
regularly, again and again, the most basic blessings.
For every bird singing, there's another harmoniously replying in song.
For every baby wailing, there's another smiling, warmly
snuggled in a bosom. Bliss is surrounding and nudging us
to open our sleepy eyes, and for each nightmare
dreamed, there's an oasis waiting to be seen,
though some choose to turn their heads. We must seek
to discover our beautiful hope. It can appear,
almost as wondrously as dew child. For it
poses a challenge: You must choose to see the beauty.
