About the Poem
This poem is about a time in my life when I was hurt deeply. To be judged by your appearance and not by what is inside you is the worst kind of hurt.
|by Robin Torgerson|
|Do not judge me by my outer appearance.
But look deep into my soul.
For it is there that you will see who I am.
Our bodies are but cases
that protects our heart from physical pain.
But it cannot protect us from words.
Think before you speak words that
will cause a heart to hurt.
And if you love someone,
surround that heart gently with caring.
A loving heart is given completely,
in trust and faith
that it will be guarded for all time.
