The Same

If you closed your eyes
Would you know who I am?
If you closed your eyes
Would you see who I am?
Is it possible
To see who I truly am
With your eyes closed
When you can't really see me
With your eyes open.
Close your eyes
And open your mind.
See below the surface
Think beyond your limits
If you cut me open
I bleed the same blood.
If you listen closely
You will hear my heart
Beating the same rhythm
That yours beats.
Take away the colors
The shades, the hues
And bare your soul for all to see
And we will be
The same.
