Poem: When You Look At Me

When you look at me
I don’t want you to see
My grades and achievement
My posturing and teasing
My unflattering body
That is unlikely to be loved

When you look at me
I want you to see
The truth of my heart
The depths of my soul
My innermost essence
That is destined to be loved

For you see that inside me
Reveals who I truly am

My name is Devin Hogg. I was born and raised in Carnarvon, Ontario, Canada. I moved to Guelph, Ontario, Canada in 2009 for university and lived here ever since. In my free time, I enjoy reading, watching TV and movies, going on long walks, swimming, and practicing Chen style Tai Chi. I love to write poetry and blog regularly about topics such as mental health, sci-fi/fantasy series, faith, sexuality, and politics.
