Beyond

Beyond the face there is a brain.

It may not always be right,

It may not always be sane.

 

Beyond the eyes there is a vision.

What I wish I could see,

All the things that are missing.

 

Beyond the breasts there is a heart.

It wants and it needs things,

But it doesn’t know where to start.

 

Beyond the past is a future.

I want to be better.

For the past, my dreams are a cure.

 

Beyond today is tomorrow.

Will it be happy?

Or will it again be filled with sorrow.

 

Beyond your expectations, there is a person.

Not perfect, not an object, not a toy,

Not always happy, and sometimes hurting.

 

Beyond the act, are the people I’m doing it for.

I strive to be the things they want,

But underneath I am so much more.
