When she was a little girl
A cruel relative
Labelled her the ugly duckling.
What were they thinking? They weren’t.
She developed a inferiority complex about it
Which lasted many years.
She was always compared to her sister
Whose looks were average at best.
The so-called ugly ducklings complex
Stayed with her until adulthood.
It wasn’t until a close and sincere friend
Pointed out that she was no ugly duckling.
In his eyes she was a beautiful white swan.
