Appearance - Poem by sandisiwe stemela

My outer appearance can never define whats within
It does not define whats within..No! ..It shouldn't define whats within
I am not this face, i am not this body, i am not this hair

you see the way i dress and assume you know me
you see my blemishes and try to judge me
can i ever be perfect to you? ..thing is, i dont live for you
your emphasis on my imperfections can never perfect or change them, i'm sorry but thats just how it is

my outer appearance can never define whats within
yes i smile, but you dont see the wounds that kill me inside
yes i dress well but you dont see the unwellness of my heart
dont judge my outer appearance
you can never know me like that.
