FLESH: You don’t see me


You cannot see me

Standing in front of you

Hair, lips, eyes, flesh

You see but you don’t

 

Eyes focused on aspects of the physical

But this does not exist

It is real

But then again it isn’t real

 

Look deep

Then you will see

Look further

And your eyes will surpass the flesh curtain

 

You can’t see the kindness in my heart

Or the true beauty I am and have potential to be

You’ll never know the warmth of my soul

Or the true emotion within me

 

Standing in front of you

Yet still you can’t truly see me

If flesh is all you see

Then you do not see me

 

“If flesh is all you see, then you do not see me” –Monica Renata
