Psalm 45:10-11, 13-15

Listen to me, O royal daughter; take heart to what I say. Forget your people and your homeland far away. For your royal husband delights in your beauty; honor him, for he is your lord. [...] The bride, a princess, waits within her chambers, dressed in a gown woven with gold. In her beautiful robes, she is led to the king, accompanied by her bridesmaids. What a joyful, enthusiastic procession as they enter the king's palace!

Now this lotus,

although it was different was beautiful just the same. Of course, you couldn't tell her that.

She wouldn't believe you. She hides herself behind rods of black grass, putting on a mask hoping that she can hide what she thinks she is. Sadly, what comes out is a reflection of beauty hidden under some disguise marking itself as strength when all it really is is fear.
