What I See

What I See

So much potential
I see inside you
I wish that you saw you
The way that I do

You think you’re a bad ass
But really you’re not
The man that I see
You’ve simply forgot

You hide in plain sight
From the world that you fear
And rarely let others
Get very near

Anger and despair
Keeping you frozen
Too young to be living
The lie you have chosen

Unhappy and lonesome
You silently cry
With pain that’s so deep
You wish you could die

The pain that you’re in
Is all too real
I've felt it before
I know how you feel

If it weren’t for the others
Who depend upon you
You’d end it all
Your life would be through

I worry about you,
It’s what I do
The friends I hold dear
Are far too few

I care about you
Believe it or not
Sometimes in this life
A friend’s all we’ve got
