By
   Under the wrinkles lies a smooth young face,

Beneath the stiffened joints are hands of grace.

Hidden by a shield of gray,

Beautiful locks of golden curls lay.

Inside the dark apron, so in need of a press,

Is a youthful girl in a pretty sundress.

What are now distorted, crippled feet,

Used to be scuffed sneakers playing in the street.

Deep within is a hidden voice,

That used to laugh, sing, and rejoice.

Some may appear ugly, fragile, and thin,

But all real beauty lies deep within.
