People are like books

I picked up the book
Did a quick glance
tossed it aside
Didn't give it a chance.
The cover was torn and ragged
the binding was broken and cracked
the only thing it seems to contain
was the quality and substance it lacked.
But, I didn't take the time
to peer within the pages
to see where this book had been
and what it battled through the ages.
The chapters held the secrets
that the cover can't convey
the things that made it what it was
and what it is today.
