Musings From A Musical Mind

Transforming The Beast

He was proud and arrogant

cocky and strong

born of privilege

he could do no wrong

A disguised person came to his door

to offer a great test

he outwardly scoffed

Compassion for a guest?

Thus began the curse

and he was also disguised

for showing no compassion

he became the despised

Then she entered his world

shaken but unmoved

he was undone

as his many emotions proved

By the love of another

was how the  curse could  be broken

his heart – entering hers

with words unspoken

Something was lifting

at first all seemed strange

but the darkness that bound him

slowly began to change

He, who was vulnerable underneath

watched as her love was guiding

the little child

he was desperately hiding

She silently willed him to be better

holding  him with such belief

that there would be no more sadness

no more grief

Could she love him?  He wondered.

A beast imprisoned by sin

there was no beautiful face to see

only someone hideous and grim

But something strange began to happen

as he changed deep inside

The curse was lifting

the selfishness and pride

And as he  felt something more

her love transformed him

made him whole again

filling his heart to the brim

Ah – this is what love does

transforms what must die

refreshes and renews

to find a real beauty deep inside

Today – look beneath the surface

you may find

a beauty waiting where the beast once was

clearly seeing where once you were blind

For love transforms

even the ugliest heart

into something rare and beautiful

lovely from the start

God Bless

  1. Great thoughts coming from “The Beauty and the Beast” play. Powerful story captured real well in poetic form. Well done! Unconditional love has a transforming power and we have lot’s of examples – starting with God’s love expressed through his son, Jesus.

    • Thanks Ron! I felt inspired by the cast of AMAZING students and a great Saturday rehearsal – I just had to write down some thoughts. There is nothing quite like love to motivate and ultimatley change a life for the better – especially when we don’t deserve it.
