This is a peom that I wrote seeing me in my father's fate.
|Beauty is only skin deep.
Even though everyone is obsessed with it,
The world’s beauty is so hard to keep.
I have know many women and have been awed
By their beauty with my eyes.
Only to be disappointed by the shallowness inside.
The whole world seems to be geared that way.
Even though you may deny it, We see it every day.
We say it is children who can be so cruel.
When it is us adults who have laid out the rules.
I once thought I was handsome according to the world standards
And then I am faced with this disease called cancer.
And though I fight for my life, all the great people I have met.
I have always judge people from the outside is something I now sincerely regret.
To the Doctors, Nurses and caretakers who have been so kind,
Who have gave of the hearts, their energy and time.
Even thought it might be too late this bit of wisdom I have gained,
Pity me not for the awful disease, but pity me for being so vain.
