About the Poem

This poem is about a time in my life when I was hurt deeply. To be judged by your appearance and not by what is inside you is the worst kind of hurt.

I really enjoyed the poem. It has a special meaning for me as I too have been judged by my looks and it is very hurtful. It was excellent!

Ok this poem is my fav. Our body is a case that protects us from the world and I myself know that words can stay inside. This poem has given me a new look on life and our fellings as human beings and if we love someone, suround there heart with love.

Perception

Do not judge me by my outer appearance.
But look deep into my soul.
For it is there that you will see who I am.
Our bodies are but cases
that protects our heart from physical pain.
But it cannot protect us from words.
Think before you speak words that
will cause a heart to hurt.
And if you love someone,
surround that heart gently with caring.
A loving heart is given completely,
in trust and faith
that it will be guarded for all time.
