I see you
Your hopes and dreams

I see the fears you hold
The worries that keep sleep away

You for all the ways
That you are truly uniquely you

You are not a sum of arbitrary things
Details to be checked off a list somewhere

You are you
Unique from all others

Much like a snowflake
One of many yet unlike all others

I see you and understand
Why it can seem easy to be part of a crowd

Lost in it
To feel less lost

Yet it’s that very erasure of yourself
That fuels the unrest that rises within

I see you amidst the crowd
For who you are and who you want to be

Losing that is injustice to yourself
And to those denied getting to know you

I see you not for any aspect of appearance
But for the very content of your character

It is in that dream
That so clearly I can see you
