I Am More You Are More We Are More

Updated on January 22, 2017

I Am More, Who Are You?

I am more than a window of glass that yearns to be stained

I am more than the silence hidden behind your restrain

I am more than the look of a birds eye view

I am more than the grass with a hint of morning dew

I am more than the structure upon my face

I am more than what your family calls a disgrace

I am more than a soaring bee's subtle hum

I am more than the heart beat of a thundering drum

I am more than the legs below my hips

I am more than the kiss you stole from my silenced lips

I am more than the flesh of a flower petal

I am more than the strength of hardened metal

I am more than the color upon my skin

I am more than the ballerina's graceful spin

I am more than the walls that I have spent years to build

I am more than the dreams that have been unfulfilled

I am more than the paint stroked upon any canvas

I am more than the sound made by every pianist

I am more than the strum of a sympathetic guitar

I am more than just some girl you met at a bar

I am more than the freckles that lay upon my arm

I am more than the deafening sound of a working alarm

I am more than the life that was given to me

I am more than you'll ever make me out to be

And if for some reason this is too hard for you to understand

Do yourself a favor and unbury your head from the sand

You think you know what I'm capable of

You have no idea how high I will rise above

You have no idea about all the hope that will soar

You have no idea because I will always be more

You told me to just go ahead and get lost

But I'm sorry you'll have to keep your fingers crossed

I will not disappear off the face of this earth

You have no idea how much I'm worth

And if for some reason this is still too hard for you to comprehend

Then it looks like you and I have come to a dead end

      I liked your message my friend. Yes, we are much more than our face, our bodies, our speech seems to indicate. There is much to the old quote that beauty is more than skin deep and a face may hide the truth held within a heart and intellect of any individual. All need respect and to be honored.whonu
