I still don't know what is beauty...

I look for beauty, love for beauty...
But don't really know what is beauty...
People say what appears in face and body...
Good looking that pulls towards you is beauty...
Is this beauty?
I still don't know what is beauty...
A lot of friends, spend a lot of time...
Shaping them to look attractive,
They say be attractive to attract is beauty.....
Is this beauty?
I still don't know what is beauty...
Some so sexy appealing, stimulate me my mind...
They say be beautiful to beautify the world, is beauty...
Is this beauty?
I still don't know what is beauty...
Some say compassion, gratitude, positivity, is beauty...
And some say talk good, look good, behave good is beauty...
Is this beauty?
I still in doubt what is beauty....
While in travel watching nature from the bus...
Then a woman carrying child around months of 6...
Sat besides me saying thanks,
Perhaps was for sharing a seat...
The moment later child turned her face over me...
But I turned face back to window as usual, 
Was a human guilt avoiding face situation... 
looked back at child after a while...
was still smiling at me...
Smile was natural, God's phenominal gift,
So adults don't hurt but love and protect... 
Selfless, innocent, playful look, smile touched my heart...
Mesmerized mind and rose my emotions...
Drew my mind stimulating, felt the touch of a child.
Each time I felt to touch her, each time I shied away,
As inner guilt of complex in me...
Yes - Yes now I find what is beauty!!
Child was still smiling, no guilt no complex...
But from pure, clean innocent heart...
Came from meanless and honest mind... 
This is the beauty, yes - yes, innocence is the beauty...
