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.
