Please
Please don't judge me by my face,
By my religion or my race.
Please don't laugh at what I wear,
Or how I look or do my hair.
Please look a little deeper,
Way down deep inside,
And although you may not see it,
I have a lot to hide.
Behind my clothes the secrets lie,
Behind my smile I softly cry.
Please look a little deeper,
And maybe you will see the little girl inside of me.
Please listen to her carefully,
She'll show you that she is scared.
Please try to be a friend to her,
And show her that you care.
Please just get to know her,
And maybe you will see that if you look down deep enough,
You'll find the real one,
The real me.
