what do you see when you look at me?
do you see a young boy who is figuring out how to become a man? do you see my worries about being cool. and hoping my mom and dad don't do something to embarrass me in front of my friends? do you see a brother who loves his sister, but wishes she would knock before coming into my room? do you see how tender my heart is, and how much I love my family? do you see a man who has a future, even though I don't quite know what it is yet? so you see my passion for playing video games? so you see that I am a good friend? do you see that I love my dog, and sleep with her every night? do you see that I am an original? do you see that there is no one quite like me? what do you see when you look at me? do you see me for only what is on the outside? if you do, then you miss the greatest part of who I am. what do you see when you look at me?
