Beauty Within - kintsukuroi contest

She had the face of an angel
Till that dreadful day
When a drunken motorist
Nearly took her life away

Her face was mangled
By the tyres and the stone
Nothing like the beauty
That she had once become

The plastic surgeon
Had magic in his soul
Just like a jigsaw
Put together to make whole

All healed up now
Face is looking fine
Battling with her nightmares
Visual scars are a thin line

Now a better person
Understanding others plights
People see her from the inside
Not a beauty without sight

Kintsukuroi is a word for her
Face enhanced not with gold
But through a clever surgeon
She has found humility untold.

    Thanks for participating in the Kintsukuroi contest, Seren. Check the last line. It appears to refer to the surgeon rather than to the woman.
