Paint yourself a picture
Of what you wish you looked like
Maybe then they just might
Feel an ounce of your pain
Come into focus
Step out of the shadows
It's a losing battle
There's no need to be ashamed
'Cause they don't even know you
All they see is scars
They don't see the angel
Living in your heart
Let them find the real you
Buried deep within
Let them know with all you've got
That you are not your skin
Oh oh, oh oh
And when they start to judge you
Show them your true colors
And do on to others
As you'd have done to you
Just rise above this
Kill them with your kindness
Ignorance is blinded
They're the ones that stand to lose
'Cause they don't even know you
All they see is scars
They don't see the angel
Living in your heart
Let them…

Being one's entire WHOLE self ..strength, weakness, wisdom, fallibility, talented capabilities as well as very real incapability... most fear such authenticity ... but WHY??? what else is there to be, to accept... to honor daily in life... not just for self... but for every person we are in contact with. I weary of cover up statements trying to convince others that someone is somehow more this, more that than others... Really? They actually know what is at the heart of everyone else's soul? They delude themselves...while showing clearly their wounds that have no scar yet to mask their self perceived deceptions. Honest, integral people don't have to convince anyone of who they are, Their words, values, actions ,vulnerability and strength speak without need for proclamations. Wholeness... the honesty of accepting every morsel one is.... are people the world needs. It is how we are enabled to support, have compassion, share strength, mercy and heartfelt unconditional love. That creates healthy balanced lives that live in harmony and happiness. No one thinking themselves more ... or less.... than they truly are within their own skin.
