No one sees me the way I am;
No one saw me the way I was;
No one will see me the way I will be;
Not even to the extent a mirror succeeds to see...

A/N: The formatting is not working.... So, I've inserted lines in between verses...


Is there a human?

Is there a human who can see me as me?

I’m just a flesh load of emotions

Receiving only a set of demotions

From the so-called peers

Who could never see my tears;


Is there a human?

Is there a human who can see me as me?

He’s my friend, my closest one

He’s of a partying type and I’m none

He wants me to be the same

But I’m usually so lame;


Is there a human?

Is there a human who can see me as me?

You see a deer as a deer,

You never see me at least near

To what I am, the other wants me cry,

When I didn’t even make one try.


Is there a human?

Is there a human who can see me as me?

When I go low in my spirit want me to smile,

When I was high in mood ask me to be vile;

Using me for your selfish reasons

Doing behind me all the treasons.


Is there a human?

Is there a human who can see me as me?

There is no human here, who can see me as me,

There is no soul that lets me as I will be,

Not even to the level a lifeless mirror

Can see, which takes me to, but fear.


Even a broken mirror can see

In each of its pieces, the ‘me’ as ‘me’!

Not a single human can see,

What I want myself to be seen.

No one sees me the way I am;

No one saw me the way I was;

No one will see me the way I will be;

Not even to the extent a mirror succeeds to see…
