Seen From The Outside
People judge her for what she is, not who she is.
Those who pause to give her a chance, use it to notice all the wrong things.
All they see is her acne, her scrapes, her flawed skin.
They see her messy hair, her freckled face, her imperfect body.
They see the glasses on her face, the pair of faded jeans, and the same heart necklace she wears daily.
She smiles sweetly at everyone, but they only see her crooked, off-white teeth.
What they can’t see is the way her heart sparks with warmth for those she cares about.
They can’t see her humorous attitude that inspires laughter from even the saddest of people.
They can’t see that she has a daring side, with a need for speed and an addiction for pure adventure.
They can’t see the wide horizons of her open mind, which allow her to appreciate the good in everyone.
They don’t realize the beauty of her true personality, and they never will.
They’re still too busy criticizing her outward flaws.
