More Than What You Thought

When you look at me, what do you see?
Defined in order, of life's motif.

I am more than what you think I be!

Do you see a man or the kid undertones in me?
Refined by life lessons, hardened granite I be.

More here breaking, like endless waves in the sea.

But when you gaze my way, what do you see?
A generosity of perfection, and chaos traveled in multiple directions?

There's more than what you think you see!

A rebel and soldier, driven for completion,
a seamstress and artist, is my reflection.

So I'm more then what you thought you seen!
