You Are Not What They Think You Are

Poetry by | February 2, 2014

You are not the
size of the shirt you wear
nor the waistline that you have

You are not the
pimples on your face
nor the wrinkles under your tired eyes

You are not the
tangled hair of your head
nor the crooked front teeth when you smile

You are not the
hurtful words they say
nor the hateful things they think you are

You are the crocus that blooms
beautifully during spring

You are the stars
that shine so bright
when the night sky is clear

You are the sun
that gives life
to everything beneath it

You are the entire
universe to someone
you probably don’t even know it
