The school was full of chatter

The constant ringing of words

None of their words

Should Matter


All the words they speak are nouns

Things, places, people, events

Words from the heart,

Never Found


They'll never know what we hide

They know people by covers

But never by

What's Inside

The author's comments:

I was inspired to write this poem by observing the world around me. I notice that a lot of people judged by what they appear to be while nobody knows what they really are. I hope that in reading this poem people will be moved to really understand everybody around them and try to understand what they are going through.
