More Than Skin

I have always tried to show friends and family that I’m not the same person that committed the crimes in my past, but a renewed version with maturity and actual wisdom I have retained throughout the years. I am not the skin I live in. Like he said. They are just seeing scars.

Through The Cracked Window (Revisited)

Draw yourself a picture
Of what you look like
Maybe then they might
Feel an ounce of your pain

Come into focus
Step out of the shadows
This is not a battle
Never be ashamed

They don’t even know you
All they see is scars
They don’t see the angel
Living in your heart

Let them see the real you
Buried deep within
Let them finally know
That you are not your skin

I have always loved expressing myself through words. I have been a bookworm since I started reading I think. So expressing myself through writing has forever been super easy for me. Now if I could just teach everyone who didn't know how, how to read, then they'd be able to read all the fascinating literature out there. I'd go crazy if I couldn't curl up to a good book on a rainy day if I wanted to. I work with the public. So I was outside a couple days ago typing away on my 2nd hand chrome book, and a nice gentleman started conversation about how long it took to charge. I said not long for an older model. He said he knew, about the older model I was working with. I proceeded to tell him I was trying my hand at writing a book. He turned out to be an avid bookworm himself. He gave me nothing but encouragement to finish the book. I like to tell myself I can do anything. But we all know how some people should just stick to their profession, well I'm gonna keep trying. I won't stop until I know without a shadow of doubt I can't succeed. Then maybe I'll put my pencil down, or in my case now, close my chrome book for good. Something tells me I won't have to just yet though.
