Hidden Masterpiece

It is not uncommon

For an artist to reuse a canvas

When experimenting with styles

In case the finished product

Is not worth a clean one

As such

Many paintings through history

To achieve critical acclaim

And everlasting fame

Hold a secret

A hidden masterpiece

Invisible to the casual observer

Only seen by those

Who care enough to look

Yet when discovered

The value that it adds

Is often immeasurable


And when I look at you

I see more than others do

I see what lies within

Your hopes, dreams, fears

Every story behind

Your smiles and tears

I don’t just see

What the casual observer sees

I see the real you

Kept from view

A hidden masterpiece
