The Ugliest Of Them All

The glow of one warm thought is to me worth more than money.

Thomas Jefferson

I am
the ugliest
of them all
my hair is nappy
my attitude crappy
and my mood unhappy
For I am the ugliest
of them all.
Yet I judge them all
based on what my eyes see
if their skin is too shabby
or if too much weight they carry
then indeed I do become wary
of having a relationship with them
even though I am
the ugliest of them all.

  1. Like how can they be so confident judging others so sure of themselves although truly not all the handsome and beautiful beautiful appear as so because each of us has his own beauty standards … i super relate to this although not i’m not quite judgemental in natural but i guess i made the strongest stance here lol 🤣

    1. I get what you mean. As people, we naturally judge each other, whether positively or negatively. Personally, it’s one of my shortcomings as I tend to make assumptions about people based on their appearance and not their behavior🙈 I’ve been practicing and so I’ve grown out of it a bit. However, I still have a long way to go though

      1. At least you try, some don’t even bother! I also try to learn reading facial expression so that by just looking at someone’s face you know what kind of person they are even deeper behind the mask they are putting on … it’s truly a long journey but definitely one that’s worth investing your time in as it will help you save so many heart breaks and not so worthy relationships …~ 🙈
