Unknown Perfect - Poem by Laura Dunne

A year ago i met this girl
living in a fantasy
a picture of perfection
in a world of uncertainties
during the day
she smiles and laughs
being this image for all to see
people idolizer her
and want to be like her
it's too late for her to change her ways

she's perfect and angelic
like a maiden from old Greece
she's radiant and confident
ready to take a chance
and she doesn't know any of this
but she's perfect and angelic
like a maiden from old Greece
she's radiant and confident
born to take any chance
but she's unaware of how perfect she is

well this girl said to me
that nothing's what it seems
and she puts a smile on her face
for the whole world to see
but at night
she goes home
and cries herself to sleep
she doesn't know
that every day
someone tries to be like her

she's perfect and angelic
like a maiden from old Greece
she's radiant and confident
ready to take a chance
and she doesn't know any of this
but she's perfect and angelic
like a maiden from old Greece
she's radiant and confident
born to take any chance
but she's unaware of how perfect she is
