You'll Just Have To Accept Me

I'm not gorgeous
On the outside anyways
My hair is unruly, different from theirs
My face is not smothered in makeup
Like that of the girls who
You think are attractive
My choice of style can seem obscure
You just have to get to know me
Look past my said un-gorgeousness and
See into my mind, my thoughts
See how they together think of
The kindness and most sincere of things
But you don't you just pass by
In the hall knowingly staring my way
Thinking I don't fit in with rest
What you see is who I am

You'll just have to accept me

The author's comments:
Everyday I look around me and see how different I can be sometimes from people, like I'm detached from their world. I've grown to accept this enjoying an observers view, flaunting who I know is, me.

very nice:) and you said it in your comments- that you accept yourself. once you stop looking in the mirror and accepting the person you are, you can learn to accept your world. keep writing and living your life with an open heart:)
