Do they have beautiful faces
but ugly minds?
Well, you can call them beautifools.
They only make friends with Mirrors-
friends who don’t care about the soul,
friends who don’t care about the real self,
vain friends who are as blind as bats.
Why do I call them Mirrors?
Mirrors only tell you how beautiful you look;
they don’t tell you how beauty-full you are.
Beautifools place mirrors in their bags,
and walk with mirrors by their sides.
They only see what they want to see
and hear only what they want to hear.
True beauty lies in the heart;
don’t be a beautifool,
and don’t make friends with one.
Even if you are not full of beauty,
since no one is,
but be the best you that you can be.
True beauty comes from the heart;
through the mouth and the hands.
Let your beauty be perceived;
let your beauty be seen.
