whats on the inside counts

What's on the Outside

What's on the outside
Can be the opposite of truth
The beautiful girl
Who's meaner than the devil
The soccer mom
Who's stripping just to pay the mortgage
The homeless man
Who fought in the armed forces for our freedom
The quiet girl
Who dreams every night of being a superstar
The pregnant teenager
Who was raped and doesn't believe in abortion
The skater boy
Who gets straight A's and wants to be an architect
The movie star
Who sometimes wishes she was still a nobody
The fat girl
Who is working her ass off to be healthy and has obstacles you couldn't fathom
Remember next time you judge on first glance
You have no idea what someones life is like
Unless you take the time to learn

Author's Notes/Comments: 

It's been a really long time since I wrote anything I felt worth sharing. And it's interesting to look back at my poems from 8-9 years ago and see how young, naive, and in some ways ahead of my age I was. I hope you enjoy the new work.
