True Colors- Cyndi Lauper ....
The reason I have always loved this song is that it expresses so clearly the way I look at the people in my world.
First I see you with my eyes.
Then as I get to know you, (and I always seem to want to know people on a deeper level)., I want to know your heart. I am not very content with the shallow stuff ,which has little significance to me.
I want to know what makes your heart beat faster.
What makes you cry.
What makes you smile, and gives you joy.
I want to know if you can be vulnerable enough to trust me with your feelings.
I want to know if I can trust you with mine and know you have compassion.
As one HUMAN being to another.
I want to know if you live your life with reverence.
All of life and all human beings deserve respect , until shown otherwise.
I will look at you with my eyes, my mind, and mostly with my heart. That is why I will see your "true colors". the beauty of your soul....
