    Look at me
    What so you see
    Let me know
    Then things won’t be so
    Strange between me and you
    There’s a lot you don’t know
    That I wish you knew
    So you can began to understand
    Why am the way I am
    How things are for me
    Look what do you see
    Some one who’s laughing all the time
    Some one gentle and kind
    But look deeper into eyes
    Do you see the anger and pain wrapped up inside
    Look at me
    What do you see
    Some one who smiles
    But do you know how I feel inside
    Do you know what that smile is trying to hide
    Wipe the tears away before
    You can see me cry
    I don’t have time for questions you wondering why
    I am so stupid to listen to what people say
    Do you think I like feeling this way
    Take a walk in my shoes for just a day
    and you’ll see
    Someone you didn’t know was there
    But why am I wasting my time
    It’s not like you care
    But it makes me mad to see
    You’ll never understand me
    Understand how I feel
    But to you my feelings haven’t become real
    But I keep trying to live my life
    Despite
    The fact you won’t take the time to go through my mind

    Maybe your just afraid of what you may find

    UNDERSTAND

    i understand,
    and so do others.
    i guess they don't want to seem,
    like your mother.
    because if we did,
    you'd judge us by your eyes.
    and if you didn't,
    i wouldn't be surprised.
    we try to be upfront,
    we try to be real.
    but your true emotions,
    are never revealed.
    so tell us how,
    you want us to act.
    and will do everything,
    just like that.
    but then that way,
    you'd never feel happiness.
    the only emotion you would feel,
    would happen to be sadness.
    we are all different,
    that's what you fail to see.
    you are you,
    and i am me.
    no one fully understands,
    what a person goes through.
    only the person bearing the pain,
    and that is you.
    don't get aggrivated,
    when we look puzzled.
    just hold your peace,
    or put on a muzzle.
    because the more you say,
    the more we're confused.
    just like a q-tip,
    what good is it if it is already used?
    do you get my drift,
    do you get what i'm saying.
    or do you assume,
    that i am playing.
    tell the world,
    what you want them to know.
    because if you don't,
    the only thing folks will say is, "SO!"
    your point of view is important,
    and so is your IQ.
    but understand one thing,
    i'm me--and you're you..............(loved your flow):toast:
