Kindness Stays Longer Than Beauty Ever CouldEvery one sees beautiful people but how many do you remember, How many faces ? and for how long before forgetting them or when time reduces their beauty in your mind.
I've seen my share of Beautiful people boys and girls. They stay in the mind for a very short time but politeness, Kindness stay in mind for a long time if not forever.
I have forgotten all the beautiful faces. At the moment i can't even imagine a single face all of them have been blurred by time but i do remember the face of the boy who was the same as my age and would give his turn away in games just to see a smile on someones face. I can still see his wonderful smile.
I also remember the face of that girl who just finished course work and was working in a Clinic for amputees. Her face, when she was looking at the young boy while trying to fit the prosthetic leg. When the boy felt some pain and his leg moved, She looked at him with a face that showed worry, innocence and kindness. I can see it clearly even now.
The group of girls going to their classes after buying some packed food, There were many beautiful girls in that group but i couldn't even remember how the looked like but one. The one who slowed down and gave some money to the Old man sitting on the stairs. She was the shinning star in them.
I can also remember the face of the girl who was carrying two cups of tea, One for herself and the other not for her friend or someone but for the beggar who was sitting on the sidewalk. It was cold morning and i was sitting in the lawn nearby enjoying my cup of tea. There she was caring for those who couldn't enjoy even the small things in life.
For me beauty is within a person. Beauty is in Respect, Kindness, Caring, Sincerity. The True beauty that won't fade with age but that grows with time.
