The first time that you saw me,
What did you think I could be?
Did you think me strong, kind and wise…?
Or was I just strange in your eyes?
Did you look beyond that first glance?
Did you try to give me a chance?
To be your friend
Because that’s all I ever wanted
But how could you understand
If you never even knew me
Well you saw me again
But you did not try even then
Because all you did was look
Judging me like the cover of a book
You didn’t trust me with your heart
Or try to make a fresh start
But you didn’t give me a chance
Or look beyond that first glance
So I never got to be your friend
And you never got to know me
This is the last time you’ll see me,
You’ve looked past the real me,
You’ve never once used your head
Or listened to what I said
You’ll probably never open your heart
Even when I do depart
Because you’ll never give me the chance
Or look past that first glance
And you’ll never be my friend
Like I always wanted
Because you’ll never know me
Nor will you ever understand the real me…

This poem is about two people who keep meeting. The first person is judgemental towards the second therefore they lose the chance of getting to know them. The second person is trying so hard to be friends with the other person but they refuse to look beyond the surface and ignore their first impressions. Remember, first impressions can hurt. Be open-minded!
I hope you guys like it!!!!!!!!! ^_^
