This is for the Rejects

I know I said I'd try not to whine so much about appearance on this any more but I wrote this after talking with a friend yesterday at a party yesterday.

I'm ugly
nice to meet you. 
Don't feel the need
to look at me
too long, it's fine
I don't think you need
or want my name,
Go to talk to my pretty friend. 

This poem 
is for the ones
in the shadows
hidden in the glow 
of beauty
the ones who are looked at
in desperation
a last option
not much attention 
just eyes 
glazed over
with too much drink

This is for the ones 
who are alone
we still stand
take my hand
and we will try
to move out of 
the shadows
and in to the light.
