What lives within us,
Deep beneath skin’s shallowness?
Beauty is finite
Where the senses are concerned.
Time eats away at our flesh…
No one is immune.
The mirror lies to the young.
Tricked by ignorance
They believe it’s forever.
Surely age doth prove them wrong
As it has done for eons.
Better spent is time
Seeing the beauty within.
Love and compassion,
They have no physical bounds…
They cannot be kept.
These are things of true beauty,
Things cherished for a lifetime.
Given with no material cost,
But having immeasurable value
These are what are precious to me.
This is the beauty,
That lies deep within.
