Beauty is only skin deep

Posted by


Oshin and Ken visited an art museum in the suburbs of East London. One sculpture caught Oshin´s heart.

´How do you feel seeing this piece of art?´, she asked.

´Well, It makes me very uneasy….so broken. How about you?´

´I´m absolutely in love. This is bloody beautiful.´

Ken raised a brow inquisitively.

´Yes, I see pain, blood, sweat, toil, tears, darkness and brokenness. But, I also see immense courage, strength, persistence, hope, light and beauty. You see, Ken! We have to be broken and battered from our inner most core in order to be so beautiful.´

´Ah! Now, I see where you get all your beauty from!´

Oshin smiled sagely, wrapping her fingers around Ken´s as they both gazed longingly at the sculpture one more time.
