Beauty Within

I can see you staring,
Pointing and whispering names,
You think you've got an easy target,
Against whom you can play your nasty games.

I can feel your eyes,
Boaring into me like a piece of meat,
You think I cannot see you,
Taking the mickey out of my feet.

I can smell the pure nastiness,
It pours out of you like garlic,
Just because I look different,
You treat me like a darlek.

I can see the two of you,
Though you think I cannot see,
The fact that my feet are crooked,
Don't give you the right to hate me.

The fact of life is this my love,
Though it might be hard for you to understand,
I have a physical disability,
You have one of a different kind.

I have a disability,
You, you are just so rude,
My problem isn't really a problem,
Unlike your stinking attitude.

For I am perfectly normal,
Really in every single way,
My disability is only physical,
Yours comes out in the things you say.

I have beauty within,
Though its something you cannot see,
For when you look in my direction,
You stare at the outer me.

Don't get to know me as a person,
Yet you think you're right to judge.
Well one day you might understand,
And might need to borrow my crutch.

Attitude is the biggest disability. Don't let others put you down for it. Be who you are!!!
