More Than Meets The Eye

You evaluate me at just a glance
And decide that I'm a geek.
My clothes aren't name brand
and my look just isn't sleek.
I admire you from a distance
you don't even know that I exist.
It's as if my chance to be cool
I somehow mysteriously missed.
But now I want you to know something
and please don't listen; hear,
I need your undivided attention.
Try not to laugh or jeer.
I am more than what I appear to be
I am a person worthy of respect
even though most of the time
the amounts are too small to detect.
Underneath my geeky clothes
is a person that is great
and hopefully one day
you'll realize that before it is too late.


A/N: I actually had this published in my yearbook. Hope you like.
