    What is it about me?
    Why is it noone can see the beauty that lies inside of me?
    They always see just the outer beauty that I possess
    But thats the only thing they see
    They seem to be afraid of the rest.
    Is it because I am too independent?
    Am I too strong?
    Or is it because they've realized if they left I could make it on my own?
    You see I want to find someone to have and to hold
    Someone who I can count on till my body turns cold
    Someone who will wipe my tears and who will not be afraid to shed them too
    Someone who is respectful and gentle
    Someone who is just like you.
    Or are you going to run away just like everybody else
    And leave me to be all alone with nobody but myself.
    Can you just tell me now to save me from all the pain.
    And to prove my theory true that all boys are the same.

    I hear you, it would be a lot easier if we knew a relationship would fail before we even bothered with it. I liked the way you posed this. Flow on and welcome to Destee.

    Your flow was so honest and I enjoyed reading it. Someday they will all see the beauty that I see because your mind is captivating. It took me a long time to realize that it really doesnt matter what kind of beauty attracts people to me because in my eyes I'm always gorgeous. Keep being strong and never change who u are to please others, one day you'll find that boy who doesn't act like the rest. Keep livin life 4 U sister. :)
