I am a book
Often left to gather dust
Or judged by my cover
But quite different inside
Before you I lay
Bare my real thoughts
But you must read between the lines
And I promise, they’re here
To understand my full tale
You must read my first page
Because assumptions can make me
Seem too stoic or direct.
I am a book
Full of knowledge and care
So one day, take me off your shelf
And perhaps you will hear
The words I’ve been saying
And then maybe you’ll see me.

The author's comments:
I hope that this poem will encourage people not to judge according to first impressions or looks.
