Refinished

She waits
Just one of a million others
Exactly the same

It isn’t her
The layers were applied
With good intentions

Fitting in
An easier existence
Goes with everything

A keen eye
Sees something
Under glossy veneer

Take her
Remove the layers
Get to her core

She stands before you
Naked
Beautiful

She cries out
Pleading for color
A new life

Unique
Dark and complex
Enhancing, not obscuring

Revealed and exposed
Her true self is born
She is refinished
