“The fact is, I’m not sure if you could handle
someone with intellect and a backbone.”
Perhaps if you took the time to appreciate someone for who they are instead of how they look, maybe you’d see that beauty lies within. But I’m not sure if you’re capable of understanding such depth. Maybe you were never taught to see beyond skin. Or, maybe you just don’t care. The fact is, I’m not sure if you could handle someone with intellect and a backbone. Someone that doesn’t need you. Someone beautiful — not just on the outside, but on in the inside as well. And while you judge and sneer, the rest of the world sees you for what you are.

when I wrote it.
And that’s very unfortunate.
