Can you see me?

January 7, 2009
By Erika Thompson, Elizabethville, PA

Life goes by, but do we really ever see it? If you opened your eyes and really saw for the first time what would you see? Would you see me as a person instead of an object? Did you know if you cut me I bleed, if you break my heart I cry but never in front of you? When you finally see me would you realize that everything you were looking for was right in front of you all along? Would you die for me like I would for you? I may not be popular, or a cheerleader, or even pretty. But if you knew I loved you, would it really matter or would you just ignore me like you usually do? If you got a chance to know me would you change your mind? If you really see me, what would you do? Your choice is now; can you see me?
