Unless you choose to see Really see You’ll never see You'll never perceive. Confusing? Well, it shouldn’t be. It’s about seeing both you and me In the fullness of who we were created to be. See me More than my undeniable introduction But the profundities of my soul And the essence of my being. See me The vastness and complexities of me Not just my apparent But my layers, my realness, my intensities. Don’t dishonor me By choosing to not see The true value of me As determined by the Creator of me. For I am far too beautiful Far too purposeful Far too powerful To ever be unseen. Yes, see me The uniqueness of me And respect and champion me Even if there are intersections where we disagree. So will you? Do you dare to? Do you choose to? Clearly and honestly see? Through the filter of a pure Godly heart? Through His eyes and with a renewed mind? For He’s created and painted our beautiful array Which is forever clearly beautifully displayed. Take notice – open your mind and heart to see The fullness of who you and I were meant to be Individually yet interwoven and parts of a collective destiny. You see – I shine, I excel, I am, I be, I rise, I journey, I see I choose to see you and I choose to see me The flaws, the strengths, the commonalities, the beauty, the uniqueness, the opportunities For life will not be all it was destined to be – unless you and I choose to see.
