So much in this society is based on looks and image. Its very shallow.

Omg i truly love this poem. The message hits home with me because i know what it is like to be judged and be the judgee (shame on me). This poem does come from the heart and soul, and you can tell. Whether it be from personal experience or not. Sad if it was.
The world more so than ever is full of people who judge people for who they are, what they look like, mental health etc and i think this is what you touched on greatly with your words, also that you've seen a lot of it. The ending is my favorite part because it rings the most truth. In the end it won't matter because we will all die, and i believe that is what most people forget. Why can't there be peace? Sigh. Instead of all this killing. Great write!
I feel like you've got a couple poems trying to say this, and this one has hit the nail on the head for sure. It's simple but it's got power and voice and still the love that oozes from your soul (not just your poetry). Great write!
