Internal Worth

People judge others by appearance
Their hair and clothing, their color of skin
Where did they learn such incoherence?
What’s outside matters less than what’s within

A precious jewel is of little surprise
Inside a box with plush velvet-lining
But its value you’d be unlikely to surmise
Inside a box that’s less than shining

Likewise the thing of little worth
Does not gain value fancy dressed
No silken garb found here on Earth
Will elevate what is unblessed

A diamond in the ground is rough
The way it looks won’t catch your eyes
But its nature is shining and tough
And its value is quite plain to the wise

You may put in your 2¢ worth, but I'll only pay you a penny for your thoughts.
