Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover
Don't judge me by the way I look
and the way I have my hair.
Don't judge me by my dirty shoes
and the way my jeans have tears.
Don't think because I have tattoos
that I'm not very nice to know.
Don't think because I swear a lot
that I have no feelings to show.
My appearance is a shield of defence
to hide my feelings deep inside.
My sensitivity is my weakness
so my appearance tells a lie.
The problem from which I was suffering
began when I was a young lad.
I used to talk to my imaginary friends,
and for their friendship I was exceedingly glad.
But now that I am very much older,
countless hundreds I now talk to and see.
Many are most interesting and harmless,
but there are others who get to me.
