Monalisa

Monalisa

A Poem by Li

She is strong, not afraid to act, not afraid to speak
She is also helpless at times, sensitive and weak
She is polite and elegant, for the most part
But believe them when they tell you she is rude and not lady like
Don't mistake her forgiveness for her gullibility, 
she knows what's up, don't undermine her ability.
Don't be surprised to see her ignore you,
you probably asked for it
She is smart and wicked,
she took three steps ahead of you when you thought you had it.
Oh she's innocent as a child and vicious as a snake,
you can count on her to act accordingly,
she is one but so many things.
I guess she's a mystery to you, incomprehensible,
but for those who know her well,
that's just her, it's who she is.

Lots of info here about a stranger, elusive, mysterious, not easily accessible,
does anyone know her, I mean really know her?

Beautifully written, Li.
I like the composition of this piece.
It entails many things; from the point of natural to that supernatural ability of the protagonist. I don't know much about Monalisa, but I know that Dan Vinci would have had his reason for drawing her picture.
