The woman who has two faces;
is mysterious, with every single secret hidden inside her,
is unknown, with tales of events told about her,
is controversial, with different aspects of personality.
Of course, she is fill of mercy and wickedness,
like how ironic was when darkness and light are both involved

Her good aspect;
honored by every affable family,
praise by every wise scholar,
sing by every high voice child.
Her life can be perfect and awesome;
with the calculation to save every cent,
with the intention to have everyone under control,
with the desire to achieve her wonderful dream.
She is affable and beautiful,
try to grant everyone's wishes like a fairy.
She is grateful and helpful,
pay back everything she owes or takes away.
She is respected and loved,
has an unique voice for others to follow.
She is the queen of every pyramid constructed.
She is pleased when everyone work in her favor.
She is satisfied when everyone do the nice things.
She never wants to have anyone bother her,
but she won't retreat either until people agree.
Those voices are annoying, with endless requests.
Those noises are irritating, with crowd of difficulties.
Those words are meaningless, with unattainable desires.
The queen just wants to live in her splendid castle,
with every single luxury and delicate possessions.
The castle is made of stones fill of fascinating patterns,
the bricks are put together neatly without any space,
and each building symbolizes the greatness of power.
There was her flag,
flying smoothly in the cool and fresh air,
spread out its colorful and ample wings entirely,
dance like an everlasting angle with flammable spirits.
At all the while, she is enjoying with pleasure,
drinking the most expensive tea,
eating the most tasty food.
She standing up straightly in the keep,
the panorama is perfect with people just work, study, and continue,
like zombies with microchips in their brains.
Her eyes shine with gleaming joy,
while her mouth turn into a bright angle.

Her bad aspect;
demeaned by every despicable criminal,
hated by every poor homeless,
joked by every unruly adolescent.
Her life can be awful and sorrow;
with the resent to let everyone pay,
with the experience of being throw out,
with the fail of an once possible dream.
She is despicable and selfish,
care about no one's emotion or situation.
She is violent and unpredictable,
intend to harm or destroy people's life.
She is ungrateful and competitive,
let every opposer regret their decision.
She is the prisoner of every kingdom build.
She is sorrow when trap inside the dark room.
She is lost when no longer know where to head.
She always wish for someone to remind her,
remind her of the great past she once live in.
When she is beautiful, married a handsome man.
When she is hopeful, have a future to achieve.
When she is affable, loved by everyone around.
However, the prisoner is destined to shelter in jail,
with the steel shackle around her hands and feet.
The old jail start slowly to fall apart,
with a broken roof and rusty steel bars,
each animal habit in it symbolize the terrible history.
There was her window,
the only way for her to see the outside world,
but it only gives a narrow view of blurry mountains,
which may stay there or get ruin like all others.
At all the while, she is weeping with eyes closed,
having barely any energy to support the body,
wearing barely any cloth to cover the body.
She lying weakly on the cold, hard floor,
couldn't feel, taste, hear, smell or see anything.
With an old face without eyeballs,
her dry mouth has turn into a weird shape.

She is the woman who has two faces,
who represents the rise and fall of great power.

The author's comments:

The poetry was actually created out of the hatred of a neighbor, but as I begin writing, I think about her acts and decide to understand her. Thereby, at the end of the poem, I feel sad about her situation because she wasn't in a great life either.
