Kiss the sky ...

Look Again - Poem by Kiss the sky ...

Big and bald, gold tooth, tattooed and a voice that won’t shout
that’s all you see then you make your mind up instantly
you are quite sure you’re right and you have no doubt.
so to you I am what I appear to be

You later find to your surprise
I am in fact a sensitive man
regarded by some as worldly wise
not as you thought an also ran

Because I don’t look the part
you thought I had no brain
but now you have a change of heart
you have been forced to think again

Clothes do not make a man
quite often they disguise a thief
who’s out to steal all that he can
he’s confident of your belief

That you can quickly recognise
the calibre of those you meet
forgetting that an appearance lies
when other men are out to cheat

The cover does not tell the tale
of what is written in the book
If you are wise you will not fail
to take a second searching look

    The funny thing is that an awful lot of people that feel discriminated against based on their looks or race, or gender, etc., often don't realize they discriminate against someone else, based on that person's looks, race, gender, sexuality, etc. I'm not suggesting that is the case with you, but haven't you noticed it to be true?
    Good thought provoking poem.
