Here’s the story of a pretty girl,
The fairest of them all,
The gentlemen flocked to her side,
Enchanted and enthralled.

Her eyes were like the bluest skies,
They charmed with just a glance,
Much better than her natural hue,
Of which she had enhanced.

Her golden locks flowed down her back,
Not one curl out of line,
These special ordered hair extensions,
Took ages to entwine.

Her body was a work of art,
So fit and lithe and slim,
She paid dearly for this trim physique,
With hours at the gym.

Her apparel was the best around,
Always the latest trend,
She bought the finest with no care,
Of what she had to spend.

This girl gave her all to look her best,
But could not understand,
No matter what the mirror said,
Her life seemed stale and bland.

Obsessed with outward images,
Her inner self decayed,
Imagine if she took the time,
To worship God this way.

A wonderful reminder to work as hard on the inside as some do for the outside.
