As you sit and think about yourself
Have you ever wondered how you appear
In the eyes of someone who knows you
I don’t mean poofy hair or a big ear.
How do others really see us
What feelings do they have inside
Do those we feel are close really care
Or are they just taking us on a ride.
How many times have you thought you knew
Only to discover it wasn’t as it seemed
That the attention you were given
Was nothing like what you had dreamed.
Some can’t express their emotions to others
No matter how hard they might try to let go
So that leaves us wondering deep inside
How much of what they feel do I really know.
