Ordinary Man

An ordinary man

With an ordinary grin

Tall and gangly

Confident spark in his eyes


The soul that lurks inside

Is kind and gentle

His smile embodies this

People look on him with contempt


The ordinary man

With the ordinary grin

Is looked on by some

Judging him unattractive


Observing this man

I smirk to myself

I have found the truth

While others dismiss him


So very odd

How ordinary people

Look at an ordinary man

Neglecting the soul within.
