A Painting

She is a painting,

A treasure trove of dextrous strokes

and exquisite colors.

Her mellow smile and simple eyes

brings out every artist's dream alike.

Underneath the taut canvas

her sallow skin withers

betraying the battles she deftly hides.

The glossy paint does run smooth

over her callused, wrinkled skin

hiding the resolute beauty within.

The painting is a masterpiece,

gathering praises and accolades

but it failed to capture her true brilliance

which remains hidden, waiting to be discovered.
