What do you see, When you look at me?

What do you see,
When you look at me?
A pimpled face.

What do you see,
When you look at me?
Slightly overweight.

What do you see,
When you look at me?
A nice style.

What do you see,
When you look at me?
A pretty smile.

What do you see,
When you look at me?

Who care what YOU see,
It's what I see,
When I look at me.

I see confidence, and personality.
Some people ONLY see the apperance of me.

What do you see,
when you look at me?
Nothing but what you want to see.

The author's comments:
I wrote this poem to teach people to not judge others by what they look like on the outside. But, to actually judge people from the inside. If people could do that, this world would be a better place.
