My Skin.

Please look pass my skin
don't judge by what you see,
use your heart with feeling-
the human-being is me,
I am not the person
that you should hate or fear,
but one who has compassion
to give a listening ear,
call me if you need me
whenever times get rough,
to lift you from your sorrows
in our weakness we are tough,
allow me this one pleasure
to help a friend in need,
or I am only half the man
and selfish in my greed,
my heart is filled with kindness
if you search you'll find within-
give me the chance to show you
by looking pass my skin.

By. Michael A. Watkins.
