Smoke and Mirrors
Just because I don't smile doesn't mean I'm a thug.
Just because I'm quiet doesn't mean I'm sad.
Who are you to judge my apperance or say I'm mean when you never gave me a chance.
Just because I'm big doesn't mean I hate working out or eat everything in sight.
This society is so judgemental that people are verbally abusive towards others because they don't look like Chris Brown or Denzel Washington.
You want to know why I don't smile, it's because everybody shows hatred towards each other.
It makes me sick to my stomach to realize that this generation is so judgemental like the previous.
I have a question for everyone, Where did all the love go?
Everything I've written in this poem, I have experienced it everywhere I go.
I cried so much and tried to figure out why people say these things to me.
I realize that words hurt more than a punch to the face.
