Its whats on the inside that counts

They laugh and taunt me,

Degrade and insult me.

I dont know why.


I smie through it,

I'm polite to them,

I show no disrespect,

Then why do they look at me like this?

I dont know why.


I'm no better than them,

I'm no worse,

We are equal,

Then why do they treat me like this?

I dont know.


It never makes sense,

Until i look into the mirror and realise,

My face is clean,

My smiles are real,

and my happiness is pure,

I finally know why.


Its whats on the outside that counts


Because they all have nothing on the inside.
