Skin Deep

On the surface she was beautiful
But she was ugly deep inside
Yet always she was surrounded
With many men by her side

On the outside she was ugly
Her beauty was deep within
She was always left by herself
Shunned by all the men

Showered with gifts and compliments
Never wanting for a date
Even though inside her heart was dark
Intoxicated with hate

Full of love and sympathy
Always lending a helping hand
Never receiving a single call
Avoided by every man

We can be so shallow
Deceived by our very own eyes
If we could only learn to see with our hearts
We men would be surprised

    going to my favourites, i agree with this entirely, this Hollywood concept of handsome is good ugly is bad, totally does my head in, thanks Joe this is brilliant. Harry
