Beyond Skin Deep

Beyond skin deep is where true beauty lies
It will never fade and it never dies
It’s something that’s felt, that stirs in the soul
It is intrinsically spiritual
It’s seen with the heart, not with the eyes

This fleshy husk is just a thin disguise
And may fool the novice, but not the wise
Who can see past what we cannot control
Beyond skin deep

Beneath the foundation, makeup and dyes
Underneath it all, there lay the true prize
It’s what’s inside that makes one beautiful
Not the shallow or the superficial
From the deepest depths beauty given rise
Beyond skin deep
