Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, in deepest gratitude:
“How handsome you are, my lover!”
(Song of Songs 1:16)
I’ve always wondered about this, Jesus.
How is it that the man one woman calls “handsome”
another woman finds “repulsive?”
Some women admire a man who’s lean, muscular and chiseled
but other women are put off by somebody
who spends that much time in the gym
finding themselves far more attracted
to the chunky guy who has a little “meat on his bones!”
Same question when the shoe’s on the other foot:
One man brags to his friends about his gorgeous date
but when his friends see her
they laugh and stick their fingers down their throats.
there are some men that most people agree are handsome
just as there are some women most people call beautiful
but not all.
You did this, didn’t You?
No matter what I look like
somebody out there thinks I’m cute.
