~Esther Mitchell, 2011~
If you just look at me with your eyes,
If you only see the shell,
You’ll make untrue assumptions,
and never know I’m in my own hell.
If you don’t hear me,
If you refuse to understand,
You’ll never know why I am this way,
And you’ll dismiss me out of hand.
A moment in silence,
Is all that it takes,
Just one pause to consider,
How your actions might change my fate.
See with your heart,
Listen with your soul,
And you might come to understand,
How much more there is to my whole.
