Poem: "The Beauty Within"

The Beauty Within

You are hurt by the ones who judge you.

You are bullied by the ones who tortured you.

You cry yourself to sleep because no one likes you…because of what you look like…for being yourself.

You try so hard to keep the tears from falling, trying to be brave and strong.

But there are times when all your walls start to break down you feel everything is your fault.

That you could have stopped this from happening…but anywhere you go people will find anything just to pick on you about and make you suffer because their life isn’t any better.

Don’t hide who you are just to fit in. Don’t base your life on someone’s else opinion about you, they don’t see the real beauty within you.
