Scratch the surface

Scratch the veneer, go deeper to find
What lies beneath the surface, hidden from the eyes
Don’t be too quick to form opinions
Don’t condemn anyone on only what you see
Judging the book by its cover and a person by their appearance
Often leads to grave errors which we regret later
Give many chances before you reject a person
Like you don’t want to be deemed undeserving by your first mistak

Today’s prompt—use the words beneath the surface in a pice of poetry

Written for Tuesday Writing Prompt, hosted by Go dog go café
