Your Eyes

'Your Eyes' by Jina Wallwork

Your eyes see me as I move and speak. They reveal a physical understanding of who I am. You can see how I interact with the world and others. Can you fully know who I am solely through observation? An accurate understanding would be based on my ability to speak. Your eyes would measure me in relation to my ability to express my thoughts and feelings, and my ability to reveal myself without fear of being ignored or ridiculed. My expression could never be perfect enough to reveal my complete truth. In order to see me clearly, you would need to use my eyes and not your own.
