just a short poem

The Me Inside

When you look at me
What do you see
Can you see the me inside
The me this outer shell tries to hide
I have dreams just like you
This is not what I had planned to do
Life has ways of testing our will
Why did I have to get so ill
When you look at me, do you turn away
Or have words that are awful to say
Beneath this skin so burned and scarred
Is a person too that wasn`t charred
Its just the shell that I dwell in
Looking like this do you think its a sin
Dont judge me on my looks and ways
I am beautiful....this is my day
My dreams are about to come true
So it doesn`t matter what you say or do
Anything can happen just you wait and see
But for the grace of god, you may end up like me
