Roses are red,
Violets are blue.
You are perfect
And I love you.

Grass is green,
But some is brown,
My hidden beauty
Will not be found.

Skies are blue,
But some are gray,
Though I'm imperfect,
Oh, won't you stay?

You see the beauty,
In gray, brown, and blue,
Because you are perfect,
And I love you.

A poet's work is to name the unnameable, to point at frauds, to take sides, start arguments, shape the world, and stop it going to sleep.

Thats exactly how I was feeling when I wrote this! haha! Too many people judge the ones they "love" on looks, not personality. Especially in high school.
