The Invisible Me..

When the one you love cannot accept you are changing and growing older.

The Invisible Me..

I stand in front of you
but you do not see me
I speak from my heart
but you do not hear me

I try to be the one you want
But you still judge me for the way I look
The years have passed and my youth has gone
You cannot accept that I am growing old

Why can't you see the beauty
that shines inside
Instead of what you see on the outside

Am I so invisible
you cannot see
Am I so invisible
you cannot hear me

I speak my truth
but you do not listen
I show you my worth
but you keep me in your minds prison

I cannot be the person you want in your minds eye
I have tried so hard
It makes me sick inside

I cover my body in coats and clothes
So you do not see my body as it grows
To think you see me from eyes that deceive
Makes my heart grieve and bleed

My hair is slowly turning silver and grey
But in your minds eye
this is not allowed

My confidence in myself
you have shattered
For now I look in the mirror
And see myself haggered

Why cant you see beyond the image of your mind
And see the beauty that I hold inside
For I am more than what you see
I am a person
So loving and caring
Thats the true me...

Your beautiful body has waged wars, kept your strong, held your life, and the lives of others inside it. It has nourished and cared for loved ones, and kept you safe from harm. Your body is perfect and beautiful in every way, and if others cannot see it then it says more about them than it does about you.
*hugs*
