Your Cover


there was once a book i wanted to read
i looked at the cover and was enthralled
the title was catching
and the cover breath-taking
but then i opened it up and started reading
and i was horrified by the discrepancy
the words were ugly and mean
the pages were marred and difficult to decipher
so i put it down
i stopped reading
and i'll never judge a book by its cover again.

if i were judging you by your cover
i would say you're nice, friendly,
beautiful even.
i wanted to be friends
i thought it was possible.
but then i tasted you and realized
you are filled with offences, pride, selfishness.
all you care about is yourself and your image,
but you forgot that sometimes people look past the cover.
