we can walk past someone and have a thought based on what we perceive .The question is do our thoughts match what is in their heart.

Sunflowers by the pathway shining so bright It feels like the sun is smiling upon this,glorious day I can smell, no I can feel the glow that illuminates this face of mine My smile radiates the yellow fields of wheat, the perfect swish of the wind, A perfect picture of relaxation, sense of calm ,joy I so badly want you see. Ask yourself can you see me ,can you feel the visual presentation I have bestowed upon your eyes Alike to so many before you, a favour is what you return, graciously offered I am forever grateful. By grace, beautiful stranger ,look harder ,dig deeper,yes you You can not see Comprehend my world. Every step I take barefoot on this cactus pavement, less and less I feel the pain ,as I inhale the air thick with smoke I can hardly breathe, it burns,I am scared I can taste iron,metal It's blood I see when I look down on my feet, Tears threaten to fall down my heart, you shall not see me as weak ,I wear my tears in the smile I present to you. It's by choice you only see my smile, you choose to take particular notice to the glint in my eyes yet..I am screaming .. I am drowning in this well, the ever ending darkness ,I breath it all in heavy is the weight it stings I try to swallow it all in I can not swim fast enough to reach the light the harder I struggle to climb to the top of the well I see a glimmer of hope shining through ,I can hear your laughter, My arms give up on me , back to the bottom of this bottomless pit I sink Can I sink any lower, Neatly wrapped like a present, this package I call my face , my body ,my personality, my smile like a bow on a box from Tiffany's Hello? Are you still there? Excuse me ?
