Don't think or judge. Just Listen.

Open your eyes
Just look at my face
Don't see the pain
See only me
Open your mind
Find a way, find a place
To see only me

Cause I'm so tired of hiding
I'm not the one who I mean
I'm tired of you hiding
From me

Look in my eyes
At all they have seen
Things that would make you cry
Make you want to scream
Look past these tears
And the anger that sometimes appears
Look in my eyes
See only me

Look at my scars
At their width and their depth
I know it's hard
But please try to accept
These ugly scars
Are just as much a part
Of me as my
Breathing lungs and breaking heart
Look at my scars
See only me

Look at this body
Slouching shoulders, sagging face
Try to understand
What made me this way
The world broke these shoulders
And this face felt its blow
But these aren't my only wounds
Just the only wounds that show
Look at this body
See only me

Just an honest attempt to explain the baggage that hinders us from finding love. Hope you enjoy.
