Real beauty (a poem by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

You are not my kind
Of beauty;
If you know what is beauty;
Though beautiful on the face
And smart as you look,
Your heart is not
As beautiful
As your face;
And that is not
What I like,
Beautiful on the face,
Ugly in the heart;
I prefer someone who is
Ugly on the face
And beautiful in the heart;
That is real beauty.
