They called her sister
but a sibling she was not
Her personality hidden
Not permitted to show
what she had and
a label was forbidden
An angel in costume
Nourishing and nurturing all
Giving love to those in need
They built an effigy in her honor
but it was faceless and cold
And sometimes it would bleed
