There is a curse that befalls everyone given enough time. An affliction of sagging flesh and accumulation of subcutaneous fat. What was once tight and muscled slowly becomes weak and loose. We can totter on the brink for ages but one day we go over the edge and suddenly our neatly shaved pubic hair or glossed lips don't help. The stares that we once drew so easily have to be earned with exaggerated pose and shrill laugh. Maybe there is still time to find value in other things, like religion, sense of community or, better yet, selflove. But some lessons are only learned through bitter experience. That's what humbles us, and gives us beauty from within.
