Skindeep (ain't the outside that counts)

Notice of absence from Jooles
I disappear for months on end......just my life but I always come back!

It's only hair.....its only skin

It's only a body for your soul to live in 

It's only a height.....short or tall 

It's only a size big or small 

It's only a smile.......crooked or straight 

It's only eye colour. . . . . . no need to hate 

It's only a laugh. .....cackle or cute 

It's only your flow. . ....loud or mute

It's only a spot......its only a scar 

It's only skin deep. ....... not all that you are 

It's only a twitch......Its only a stammer 

It's only an accent. ....not without glamour 

It's only a that......its only a this

It's not what's important. ....what makes life bliss 

It's only you. .....right or wrong

It's all part of you..Love yourself...stay strong

    Thanks JOOLES for a beautifully penned and expressed poem about who and what we are. It is equally important thet the inner WOMAN (and MAN) is just as beautiful and attractive as the OUTER ! Self Worth and Self Esteem are two of our most important traits ! Thanks for sharing ~ Please check my poems ~ Hugs BRIAN
