She’s aware that she’s not ugly,

don’t kid yourself;
but because she has a pretty face,
no one looks further than the mask
that she’s forced wear for everyone else

She knows what you’re thinking –

Why be bothered with a deeper well?
Wasting time nurturing a thirst, when
A quick drink at the edge of the
Pool of knowledge will suffice?

She wonders if anyone has considered that

The pool could be worth the cost
