What do you see when you look at me?
A restless soul behind these eyes?
Do you see the chance I long to take?
The truth behind my lies?

Perhaps you're blind and you don not see
My hand reaching out for yours
Can't you see that life is much to short
To hide behind closed doors?

Before you turn away from me
Take a look under your guise
What do you see when you look at me?
A reflection of your cries?

So take a long look at yourself
There's much that you could be.
Unveil the restless soul inside and
Tell me, what do you see?

I love writing poetry, but I don't always use rhymes because usually they suck! but this time it actually worked out pretty well
