can u look past my flesh
can u look past my scars
can you look into my heart
please look past the sinew and bones
and look into the soul that I own

i know u see my flesh

my scars on my arms,

my stretchmarks

on my legs,hips and ‘arse’

can u look past my flesh
can u look past my scars
can you look into my heart
please look past the sinew and bones
and look into the soul that I own

i know u see my face,

my pointed nose and

if u really inspect

you’ll see every blemish and fleck

look past the sinew and bones

look into the soul that I own

look past my sinew and bones

and look into the soul that I own
