Do You Really See

Do you really see?
Do you really see the real me?
Do you see behind the mask?
Behind what I put out to the world?
Do you take a moment?
Do you really see behind the brown eyes?
The soul?
The heart?
The true beauty within?
Do you really see?
Do you see the pain?
Do you see the hardship?
Do you see what lies within?
Can’t you see?
Can’t you see the real me?
Look beyond the smiles,
Look beyond the laughter,
Look beyond the outer,
Look deeper inside,
Look beyond those moments,
See all there is,
See what there is of me,
I do it because,
I know nothing else,
I do it because,
I love you,
I do it because,
It’s hard because I have been hurt,
I have been through hard times,
And although you might think it’s easy,
To just show my emotions on my sleeve,
I still struggle day in,
Day out,
Because I want to believe,
Believe in beauty,
Believe in love,
Believe in something wonderful,
I just want to be taken by my hand,
Be shown emotions,
Without worrying,
Without thinking,
Without comparing time,
Just be,
Just love,
Just give it your all,

Because we want to think of the best,
We want to believe in the dream,
We want to hope,
Even when it seems crazy,
Even when it seems insane,
But sometimes there are times,
Those lessons we never learn,
Those lessons we go through time,
And time again,
There are some things worth repeating,
Especially when it comes to love,
Because we have to take that chance,
Even through hardship,
And broken hearts,
Because you never know,
What can happen?
Don’t make an excuse,
Doesn’t matter if you have dealt with it or before,
Sometimes you can’t learn,
Without unlearning something from your past,
Sometimes you got to let go,
Sometimes you have to hold on,
Sometimes you have to never learn a lesson,
And sometimes you need to learn it well,
Just remember to take risks,
Take chances,
Don’t hold ba…
