The cold, hard, judgemental glare

You look me up, down and all over

Then turn up your nose and go onto say

Don’t you dare look at me that way

I stand shocked with my mouth hanging open

And I say you can’t possibly be talking to me that way

I stand here powerless to say what truly comes to mind

Your repulsive behavior leaves me paralyzed with disappointed

And fearful of your pure ignorance

I by nature am a happy soul

Loving and accepting of all

You, I find accept only those like yourself

Which I’m afraid is a mistake

So I offer you now a free word of advice

That you turn down your nose

And turn on your heart

I’m sure you’ll find

That you can play the part

Of a caring, warm and gentle soul

Leaving behind the hard shell of your past

The Way You Look At Me©
