They Should Have Made Me Inside Out

Some poems just fall into your head. This was one of those poems.


It began as a random thought inspired by a mundane activity; I was pulling clothes from the tumble dryer and turning them outside in.


What if we were made inside out: how would people see us then?




They Should Have Made Me Inside Out


My face is plain

My eyes are wrong

My brain is big

My heart is strong

Thy should have made me inside out


My hair’s not cool

My clothes are cheap

My mind is sharp

My dreams are deep

They should have made me inside out


My smile is weak

My lips are thin

My hope is huge

Beneath my skin

They should have made me inside out
