Ugly - Poem by sam, corrupt S, finley

I have an ugly face that makes people turn away
And no matter what I’ll have this face everyday
People judge me before they even get to know me
They keep pushing me father to a place I can’t see
How long will it be before all the friends I do have leave?
I already lost one and I shall not lose no more
For all the friends I lose is another second I won’t breathe
If I lost anymore I’d be suffocating on the floor
Nobody cares about the ugly they might as well die
Who could care if only just one committed suicide?
The unloved that has been pushed to the end
The face that couldn’t smile, laugh or mend
How the beautiful are treated different then the ugly
Is amazing how they are loved with loving arms around
To smile like that instead to have to look like a druggy
Because you’re miserable and your life has hit the ground
Pain has been my way for so long it seems
Ugly or beautiful we all must have dreams
Whether it to be treated like the beautiful or just to smile
My face is too ugly to be forgotten easily least not for awhile
That face will sear your mind for so long
If you’re looking for a sign you looked wrong
I am sorry for all that have to look at my ugly face
I feel so sad that I am that horrible to ever be
We all almost know what it means to of that race
I apologize if it’s my fault me your day was crappy
Forgive me for I didn’t choose to be like I am
I didn’t choose to be the sad, ugly, lonely Sam

    I like the originality of this poem, I think you should rewrite it without rhyming though, I think it detracts from your meaning in this case by forcing words that don't quite fit. There is beauty where ever someone is willing to look for it, keep writing your perspective is profound. (Report) Reply

    It is a same people judge a book by it's cover.
    In my eyes the treasure lays within the tattered dusty cover.

    Wonderful insight
