Broken People

I wish to be with the broken people
The get in your face challange me people
The sometimes hidden
Sitting in a dark corner kinda people
The don't you love me
I wish you seen me sorta people
People just being real people
Not having to have it all together people
Doing their best to figure it out people
Dancing singing without the smooth moves people

I don't care about the color of their skin
Or what others think of as their sin
They don't need to be perfect to win
Seeing and listening is where I'll begin
Beyond appearance of fat or thin
I only know what I know
I've never been where they've been.

We'll start 
with our broken smiles
It's the best that we've got
It might seem like so little 
still I think it's a lot
Through empty corridors
We have been brought
Lessons that we've learned
Some that we've taught
Real is real it can't be bought

So forget the fake people
The all about perfect hair and clothes people
The I live in the right neighborhood and drive the right car people
It's all about me, top of the hill people
They only hang out with the supremely cool people
Those to important to talk to me people
Thinking they're the best of the best kinda people
When all along they are merely Sheeple 
Ba ba baing, thinking they are strong instead of feeble

I love characters 
People who are unique
I look under exteriors to gain a peek
Strength of lions disguised in meek
Unconcerned with fab or being chic
Worth listening to if alowed to speak
The stories they tell will make your eyes leak

For in the end
We are all broken
Stumbling and choking
Disguising hurt with our joking
Victims of others and their poking
So look close maybe you'll see
Eyes that aren't blank 
Hearts that aren't empty
Who we think of as complicated
In the end might not be
They might push when you come close
Yet they are affectionate time three
Just a bit afraid and broken 
Wishing  and wanting
to be a part of we!
