what do you see

what do you see when you look at me
can you tell i have a soul
do you see only my body
do you think i am less whole?

can you tell that i have feelings
tho i'm judged by all who gaze
that i hear the words you say of me
i'm not dumb or in some haze

do i make you feel uncomfortable
are you unsure what to do or say
do you pass by dismissing me
or look the other way?

but i'm a soul the same as you
my heart it beats and bleeds
i have hopes and dreams and fears
i have wants and needs

i need someone to look at me
i want someone to care
i need someone to understand
to reach out, if they dare

i promise not to bite you
if you reach out your hand
oh lets be friends and share our lives
wouldnt that be grande?
