Through My Eyes

If my eyes could project the film of my life

You’d be in awe of the strength I possess

The ability to show love in the midst of disrespect

Kindness for the broken who continuously break others

Lightheartedness in times of stress

If you could see me

You’d truly see yourself

Free of all the imperfections and fears

Misjudgment and strife

You’d see the depth of my love

Admiration for who you are


Peer closer and you might see

Your reflection

Walking into view

I wonder once the credits roll

Would you still love you?
