Within all that veneer

Within all that veneer lied all the bruises and the savagery. Her face revealed everything for us. We are the onlookers. Simple truths sometimes elude everyone at times. Yet she hid nothing. Some people still fail to see.

Up to the noble ranks from the dingy bottoms, everything lays bare. Everything remains...the same.
Wealth gives people power. Wealth gives people beautiful homes and plentiful food. Yet nothing changes throughout the strata of the poor to the rich. Nobody's different per se. Everybody wants something. And usually, everybody wants the same thing. Hence, the struggle, the war. The oppression of the weak from those in power.
