There once was a girl.
She was brought into her world by parents who loved her.
She had everything she needed to live a perfect life.
She was perfect.

There once was a girl.
She was brought into a world where a man reigned over all his loyal citizens.
A man who reigned over a world that had enough resources for everyone.
A man who reigned with the intention of a common wealth for everyone.
A man who reigned by giving everything in his world a comparable value.
A man who reigned by making people work for valuable things.
A man who thought that this was the only way to make people work for each other.
A man who ended up defining a value for all his citizens.
A man who ended up reigning over people living their lives to chase value.

There once was a girl.
She was brought into a world by her parents who loved her.
Her parents gave her the most important gift they could find for her.
Her parents gave her a gift all parents had given to their children.
Her parents gave her a mirror that always showed her her true self.
Her parents gave her a mirror that didn’t recognize value.
Her parents gave her a mirror that could show her perfection to her.
She was perfect.

There once was a girl.
She was brought into a world where everything had a value.
She was brought into a world where a man reigned.
When the man was looking at the girl, he saw her mirror.
When the man saw her mirror, he realized the threat it imposed on his order.
When the man saw her mirror, he understood that people had something other than value to define themselves by.
When the man saw her mirror, he was terrified that it could destroy his system.
When the man saw her, he took her mirror and broke it to pieces.

There once was a girl.
She was born into a world where everything had a value.
A man had taken what was most important for her and broken it to pieces.
A man who did everything he could to impose his order.
A man who thought that only chasing their value would make people work.
A man who destroyed the mirror every citizen was given.
A man who knew that they had to replace it with value.
The citizens knew that they had to sell things to improve their value.
The citizens knew that the best thing to sell is what the customers need the most.

There once was a girl.
She was brought into a world by her parents who loved her.
She had lost any way of seeing her true self.
She had nothing left but her own value.
She met a man.
A man who taught her that she was her value.
A man who taught her that the point of her existence was to improve her value.
A man who taught her how she could improve her value.
A man who told her about the approval of others.
A man who told her about valuable possessions.
A man who told her about beauty.
A man who told her about intelligence.

There once was a girl.
She was born into a world where everything had a value.
Her value was determined by others, so she started chasing their approval.
Her value was determined by her possessions, so she started acquiring them.
Her value was determined by her beauty, so she started modifying it.
Her value was determined by her intelligence, so she started to prove it.
She met Citizens who understood what she needed the most.
The Citizens who sold her the approval of others.
The Citizens sold her valuable possessions.
The Citizens sold her beauty.
The Citizens sold her intelligence.

There once was a girl.
She was brought into her world by parents who loved her.
She spent all her life looking for her true self.
All she ever found was her value.
She concluded that her value was too insignificant.
She concluded that she was valueless to a world where everything had a value.
After acquiring everything the man had told her to,
She still didn’t find a way to see her true self.
All she saw were her imperfections that made her valueless.
Little did she know that
She was perfect.
