What I See


You only hear ambience

But I hear music.

The air swirls around me

The world breathes to the beat of my heart,

A constant, pulsating light:

Strings, percussion, and a choir of Earth's creatures.

I can feel the Earth itself 

Dancing to its own rhythm.


You only see people

But I see life.

Experiences and knowlege

Wisdom and innocence

Creativity and synergy.

Each person has a story

A beautiful story, about life and love and heartbreak and joy

If only someone would listen.


You only see me

But I see you

And you are beautiful.

No matter how cynical

No matter how sad

You are still beautiful

Because you are you

When nobody else can be.
