Take Another Look

When you look into my eyes
What do you see?
Do you see me?
Or do you see what you wanna see?
Do you see the man that I am trying to be?
Or do you see what everyone else seems to see?
Maybe if you took another look
A deeper look
You would see what I’m trying to show
And not see the image of what other people think they know

It takes a person years to "take another look", I wonder why?

Wow nice I like it. It shows you care what people think they see in you. Its a good thing to know about people.

To take the time, and truly look, and get to know someone without listening to what everyone else is saying about them.
That is how i see this poem. A very well writen short poem.

It's brief and concise. Well said.
I love to read short poems with deep-seated thoughts.
I would rather say "You are what you are and only you who knows it"
I would really like to see the window of your soul, your eyes.
