Fed up with the shallow people...

 

Inside

You know what they say,

‘It’s what’s on the inside that counts.’ ‘Beauty is only skin-deep’,

But since when has anyone cared,

Cared enough to see what was,

What was really on the inside?

Inside is where the real person hides.

Hiding behind the easily seen outside.

Outside is skin-deep. It truly is the only thing.

The only thing people see, care about.

When was the last time?

Someone brave,

Someone strong,

Someone cared,

To see, comprehend the inside?

Outside is happy, invincible, impenetrable, simple.

Inside is mourning, lonely, different, complicated.

Outside is us.

Inside defines us.
