Not Enough


Why do you have to look at me like I have 10 heads?
Doesn't it hurt your kneck to strain it so far
just to see who your friend is staring at?
Haven't you heard the saying,
Don't judge a book by it's cover.
Well it's the same with people.
Don't just look at somebody and think that you hate them,
just because they are overweight, different color, or not pretty enough.
Because insinde you will that they are a really great person.
What would you have done if I were skinnier?
Prettier?
White?
Would you give me a chance?
News flash.
Not all skinny, white, pretty girls are
sweet and fun to hang out with.
But you will realize someday that you made a mistake,
by judging somebody from the outside,
instead of looking in.
I'm sorry I'm not enough for you.

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
