Blighted by Skin

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


Blighted by my human skin,

I’d peal it back and start again.

It’s not that form offends me so,

it’s just where people’s judgements go.


They say that beauty is only skin-deep,

a polite way of saying, beauty’s a leap.

Superficial judgements are profuse and mean,

when our value and worth are hardly seen.


If stripped of all that sets us apart,

what beauty we’d find within our hearts.

To see past all the physical crust,

would open doors not based on lust.


Attraction could be based on worth,

of principles, morality and compassion first.

Our view would find more love at hand,

not reject, judge or limit brand.


A better world this balance would make,

a perspective new and path to take.

To vision souls not bodies create,

connections vast, for humanities sake.
