    Haven't you ever thought it would be very

    enlightening to see the world through another's eyes?

    When I look at myself I don't see anyone

    special. I'm just another person living on the planet. And I get told that I'm pretty, or cute, or sometimes even a *****. I get told a bunch of different things, but I don't know which is true. Who am I really to those around me? Do I stand out? Or am I just another face?

    What do you see, when you look at me?

    Do you see me for who I am? Or do you see me through the tinted lenses of predetermined stereotypes? Do you see me as a unique individual, or do I seem like a cliche nobody? Who am I to you? Do I mean anything at all? Am I your friend? Or just a source of entertainment to you...

    I am an overweight nerd in a world

    where neither of those things is socially acceptable. I wonder if anyone sees past the societal disgust. I wonder if people can accept me. Will I ever be good enough?

    I wonder what people really see

    when they look at me. Do they see my beautiful smile that holds all my insecurities. Maybe they see my fear held deep with in my eyes. Can they see I sometimes have pain and even the happiest cry's. I have such a bubble personality but that just covers up the truth, I'm so...

    1 year ago: I look at her.

    She stares right back at me. Who are you? I want to ask, but I already know the answer. Her skinny legs look like twigs as she struts towards me. Her arms are so tiny. Her ribs are almost popping out of her stomach. I look up into her eyes. They once sparkled but now were a dull...

    I wish I could see myself the way other people

    saw me so then I wouldn't have so much self hatred. Maybe then I wouldn't compare myself to every pretty, skinny girl I see and put my myself down for not looking like that. I'm so tired of hating the way I look. Nobody understands how I feel when I talk about it. Sometimes they...

    the only way you can see yourself is through a

    mirror. I will never see myself in person and it leads me to the thought of what do people see/think when they see me? I feel as though I'm so close to myself because I am me, but at the same time I'm so far away. just an interesting thought

    The Poetry of Perception

    You may find that person in life that is an exact replica to you, your alternate thumb print so to speak.  But the truth is, we are all individuals and as such our perceptions vary. I know what I see when I look at that plain wall, in the mirror, at 'him', etc.  But...

    What do you see? Yeah there's the brown hair

    and eyes, but what else? You can't see what's inside, that's why it's so easy for others to judge, to assume, and to turn away. But we may have more in common than you'd ever imagined. So, take a closer look at someone next time you start to judge =]

    Ever wondered, do we all see the same world?

    One I think about most is, do we all see the same colours? Like, for example, I see blue as blue, but do other people see blue as yellow?

    Will the Man With No Eyes See Darkness?

    of me and what they actually see when they look at me. Do they see me for who I am or for who I appear to be. It's always baffled me. When I look at myself I see my past, I see the scars, I see pain but I also see someone that doesn't give up on others, someone that believes in...

    I do wonder what people see in me.

    For what they often see is a mask/ a wall that hides me. All people wear masks though. We all have layers that peal off. My greatest fear and my greatest quest is to find friends and lovers who I can show my true self too. No masks just me. I want to be bare to them and I want...

    What people see is a perception!

    What is it that catches your eye first? The closely-cropped top? The semi-hidden tattoos? Maybe it's the unfriendly look or maybe the thuggish physique. It amuses me when people avoid sitting next to me on the bus, it happens all the time. Would it change your perception of me...
