Truth & Beauty

'Beauty is not in the face.

Beauty is a light in the heart.

~Kahlil Gibran~

The *Truth & Beauty* Necklace

Beauty that is true and everlasting
is not to be found in features nor facades.
It sprouts from somewhere deeper,
a pocket untouchable by time
and unfathomable in its depth.

The *Truth & Beauty* Necklace

It is uplifting and contagious…
it calls out to you across the room,
charging its way into your presence like a steam train.

The *Truth & Beauty* Necklace

Real beauty is not all about a porcelain complexion,
nor a 27 inch waist…
…features will fade and ripen with time,
leaving only truth,
the essence of character.

The *Truth & Beauty* Necklace

There is beauty in the lines upon your body,
they tell your story of a life loved and lived…
…and those grey hairs that start appearing,
one day, 
some day,
they are a totem of knowledge and of knowing,
only possible with the passing of years.

The *Truth & Beauty* Necklace

There is beauty in compassion
and laughter
and light…
There is beauty in imperfection,
and shadows,
and truth.

The *Truth & Beauty* Necklace

And there is beauty in you…
you may not see it in yourself,
but ask anyone who loves you,
anyone who believes in you…
