Favorite Quote:
"Kind words are short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless." -Mother Teresa

So many people seem so nice on the inside
But not until you get to know them
Do you see their true colors
They may seem like the nicest person around you
But around different people
They may be the worst person ever
Or it may be the exact opposite
So many people
So little time
To learn who they truly are
Inside their hearts
And their minds
How will we ever know?
It seems like you know a person
And you think you truly know who they are
On the inside and out
But one day
There are certain people they hang around
That influence them in a bad way
Showing who
And what

They truly are inside

So you finally see their true colors

I was inspired to write this after one of my best friends turned on me and became one of the popular people, wanting nothing to do with me.
