I paint a picture of myself for you
It is painted the way I want to portray myself
The way I want you to see me
See the colors as they decorate me
But also search for inner self
Search for my heart
For the hands of my heart paint this picture
And my mind is the canvas
My mind is my knowledge
As you look do you find it captivating?
Or is it just another painting?
Just another face in the crowd?
Seek further for deeper colors of the soul
A true person will paint true colors
Will paint even the shades of gray
I trust to believe I paint the true me
Therefore what you see is not perfect
What you see is the truth
So do not look at this picture blindly
But see it from within your heart
From within my portrait
