In my Skin

Location


My eyes are the windows to my soul

What's inside of me does it glitter like gold?

Take a sneak peek just to see the real me

to whom I express my individuality

through this personality and yet Im just an entity

That manifests through flesh is how it's suppose to be

Why do I hide behind this skin

with a pretty grin?

I have so many flaws you would think I had it all,

I stand tall because this is the skin that I am in.

Im only one spirit looking out through the in

surrounded by billions looking for guidance within

Trying to stay positive in a world full of sin

It's hard living life in the skin that I'm in

Looking for acceptance all the wrong places

because all the world wants is a bunch of pretty faces

My body is the shelter to my soul

It's really hard to be me in a world so cold

We all want to be grown,

no matter how old

Having too much pride is what makes us too bold

Don't jugde a book by it's cover is what they say,

but we've all helped in bringing down the human race

Its crazy how we pick out other peoples problems,

but never take the time out to help resolve them

Im only one spirit looking out through the in

surrounded by billions looking for guidance within 

Trying to stay positive in a world full of sin

Its hard living life in the skin that I'm in 

Looking for acceptance in all the wrong places

because all the world wants is a bunch of pretty faces

I stand tall because this is the skin that I am in.

It doesn't worry me

because we were all made differently

Some may have similar features of me,

but they'll never have my exact identity,

so Im not worried, I reside in my skin comfortably

and confidently because there is only one of me,

this personality, this vessel, this entity.

In my skin.
