What do you see? be honest she asks
I see a beautiful young lady with
morals and attributions of the new age adult
You are fair, clever, and I am so proud of you
You know much more than i could ever understand
Lies she says, try again
I see a complicated but mature young lady
Who is seeing the future in her own way
With determination to be successful
And push herself as far as she possibly can
Are you sure? She enquires
Well I think so. He replies
Are you sure you don't see a failure
Are you sure you don't see a let down
A disappointment, a superficial and stereotypical
view of your lowest expectations?
Please stop me if you disagree......No? Didnt think so.
I will tell you what I see, I finally see me,
The one I have been looking for
For such a long time
I may not be beautiful but I am that delicate
But independent butterfly
You see it?
Well yes of course... he says
Ah... but thats the catch you dont!
You dont truly see it at all
You see what you have fabricated
I hurt too! Don't cover me over
Dont try to see what you think maybe
is correct, just say what you truly see
I see the carefree, i finally see me
what do you see? she asks
Well... he says
Exactly...she says.... you dont see me at all
You see you.
