I can see it in the eyes


You can't fool me with your body language
You can't fool me with your lies
You can't fool me with that confidence
I can see the real you through your eyes.

I see there is more than you display
I see there is more than you advise
I see there is more than your veneer
I can see there is more through your eyes.

I see a women with confused identity
I see a women who has died
I see a women crying out for significance
I can see it all thorough your eyes.

You wish you were a person who is someone else
You wish you could win affirmation's prize
You wish you knew the answer to "what is truth"
I can see the pain in your eyes.

But I see a women with beauty within
But I see a women who is lithe
But I see a women luminous
But I see it despite the eyes.


Note : "lithe" means pliant, supple or flexible. "Luminous" means bright, light, or shining.
