She is a masterpiece, a perfect work of art.

But the only gold found upon her is concealed within her heart.

With angel wings, she soars and flies, spreading happiness wherever she goes.

Don’t look for her in a crowd.

She is a mistress of disguise.

The mask she wears hides the sadness in her eyes.

Every night she lets her tears fall before she goes to sleep.

Then as the sun rises in the morning, so does she.

Once again becoming, a masterpiece.
