Inner Beauty

lt doesn’t matter
how so plain,
Or rough the crust may be —
The kernel is
what truly counts —
The part we cannot see.

A piece of land
perceived as good,
And ripe for human toil
may yet prove unproductive
Without the proper soil.

Can we appraise
the sabre
While still within its sheath,
or comprehend the ocean
Unless we look beneath

Sights we often
fail to see
And thoughtlessly pass by,
may yet be those that satisfy
The palate, not the eye.
