"Screw the shining armor. I will take my man in dirty camo any day"

What's the great flaw?
Each day at school
I fear what people think.
But why should I
Behind these glasses and scares
Is a girl waiting for love.
My beauty unseen
By everyone but me
I hide
For fear of being judged
Each and everyday.
Paper and books are my fast get away
Why do people judge the insecure?
Those of us afraid to show our true colors?
I have not the bravery.
But you. You have assured me of hope.
And you should know I will be forever and eternal grateful. Thank you thank you.

Please don't judge people. Be kind and be a friend to someone in need. They'll be grateful.

You are really talented! Keep up the good work, because it's very moving! I love your word choice, it's impressive! But be careful with spelling & grammar mistakes.

The only negative thing I can say about this is that you messed up a couple times on grammar/spelling/punctuation. But other than that I love it! I love your message! And seriously, don't be ashamed. Don't hide who you really are ever. I know how that is too. I used to do the same thing. Trust me, I was the queen of teen judgement, lol. I enjoyed this very much. Keep writing! :)
