Do you see me?

Do you see me?

Do you see me?

I wake up to myself

clothe myself in outfits that suit me

I walk out to the world

with all of me

In hopes of meeting minds that think like mine

And hearts that accept mine

In my dreams, its all so easy

That I'm seen for who I truly am

Yet when reality strikes

I see that it's just a dream

Like smoke I disappear

Like vapour, all of me quickly vanishes away

For all you see are the clothes on my back

And the words of my mouth

You think you do

But do you really see me?
