Lonnie Smith

There's beauty in life and the open acceptance of another.
There's beauty in the ability to share our time and thoughts with another.
There's beauty in discovering a friend and truly connecting with another.

Beauty isn't the shape of your lips, but it's in the way you say things.
Beauty isn't in the color of your eyes, but it is in the way you see things.
Beauty isn't in the ability to hear, but it is your ability to listen to another heart.

Beauty is the uniqueness of you.

Physical beauty fades away over time the things of lasting value.
These qualities are true beauty in its rawest form.
This is the beauty I seek to discover in you.

I'm open-minded, creative and intelligent with a big heart. I get a lot of pleasure out of making someone laugh and having stimulating conversations.

I can bring fresh oxygen for your heart and soul that nameless crowds and demanding acquaintances stamp out. It's easy to find a crowd. It's harder to find a friend. Crowds gather then disperse when the event ends. Friends never leave us.

Hobbies are poetry, movies, reading, Bible studies, cooking, and traveling.

Since being incarcerated I've taken advantage of every educational opportunity available, which has made me a better person. I am a gifted writer, and analytical thinker, with a gentle listening ear.

In closing I'd like to leave you with these words that come straight from my heart to yours.

The world keeps right on spinning;
The days go flashing by.
In my heart I seek another.
Someone searching, such as I.
I reach my hand out to you,
Though I know not what will be.
You're a stranger, yet I know;
For you've come searching, just like me.
