So, you acted like a little dirt worm
You saw my bright light and you ran
I didn’t scorch you with my brilliance
I took pity on you,letting you live
Still, I find you
You close up as a flower at day’s end
My warmth opens you up
You are in fear
I am in love
You die a little each day
I live and my days are multiplied
You bow your head in shame
I pick it up,telling you you’re beautiful
You study your flaws in your cracked mirror
I hand you a new one- all I see is flawlessness
I see a leader
You say you follow
When will you see what I see?
When will you feel what I feel?
Does it matter?
Not a damn it doesn’t!
Whether you accept it or not
You can’t change my mind about what I see
You see all the wrong
I see everything that’s right.
