Afraid to Love

There was an ugly kid in town
That no one wanted around.
He was not worth anything,
Just a silly ugly freak.

Sat all alone at school,
Self-hatred scarred fool.
Cried suicide down his cheek,
This world devours the weak.

What were they afraid of?
Was in need of someone's love.
What were they afraid of?
Were they afraid to love?

A fat man slandered down,
Became the talk of the town.
He used to look like a freight,
Until he lost all of that weight.

But they never really cared,
But for gossip in the air.
Apathetic words tore apart
His lacerated heart.

What were they afraid of?
Was in need of someone's love.
What were they afraid of?
Were they afraid to love?

    love is a scary thing but judging someone because of the way they look is somthing worse

    It's hard being considered ugly physically. I know that all to well. And people can be so cruel sometimes. But one needs to stay strong and push through the sadness even though it may be hard. I hope that this ("ugly kid")beautiful soul finds happiness.
    Good write. Best wishes.
