Maybe I bag your groceries

Maybe I clean your pool

Maybe I trim your hedges

But I'm no fool

 

Maybe I lack the fashion

Maybe I've torn my jeans

Maybe I need a haircut

But I've got dreams

 

Maybe we're not on welfare

Mom and sis and bro

Maybe my daddy's long gone

Maybe you don't know

 

Maybe my skin isn't just like yours

Maybe my teeth aren't white

Maybe your so-called standards

Aren't altogether right

 

Maybe I'd work very hard to win

Maybe I'd learn from a book

Maybe my abilities

Are worth another look

 

Use your eyes and see me

Take all my features in

Consider what's on the inside

Look beyond where I begin

 


 

You

I smile when I get feedback.

Click the button above and make me happy.
