Beauty is internal. It's what one has on the inside; morals, ethics, integrity, empathy, confidence, personal sense of security. Most people feel that way, even if they don't have the poetic ability to verbalize it. As you get to know someone their true beauty (or lack thereof) reveals itself. No boob job, makeup, tattoo, dress, beard, hair style or hat can hide that significance once it's revealed, one way or another.
It is also fluid, changing with each passing season, decision, mistake, growth, event and tragedy. Internal beauty can fade, slowly distinguishing the energy of light that shines through one’s eyes, or it can grow stronger as one obtains the ability to express honesty, compassion and positivity more consistently. There is no age restriction on this kind of growth, just limitations placed on us by our selves. It’s our own power of imagination that lets us continue to grow and become ever more beautiful with age and the wisdom that that brings.
So be a good person and continue growing, you will literally be more beautiful for it.
