Short Sad Poem

Appearances Can Be Deceiving

There is an old song, "From a Distance," which always struck a chord with me. It illustrated that from a distance everything looks nice. You're often not able to see things as they really are.

The Perfect Little Town

Published by Family Friend Poems May 2017 with permission of the Author.

The little town was the perfect little town,
Where never would you see even one little frown.
No matter where you'd go around town to stroll,
There were perfect little houses, all in a perfect row.

It was the perfect town, till you crossed the tracks,
Where there were rows and rows of dirty little shacks.
The people who lived there lived just outside,
Just outside of the perfect little town.
