What if it were possible
To see souls instead of flesh?
How would our minds change?
Would it only be then that we treat each other better?
To me, this would mean
Seeing the actual person.
The whole person.
Everything hidden deep down would be free.
It all could finally come into the light,
With full confidence,
And while the actions may be judged,
The person may not — for they will still be loved and shown real love.
Wouldn’t that be just amazing?
It brings tears to my eyes,
And more well up in my throat.
Actual love is what people need.
Perhaps this is why so many people
Have a mental illness of some kind.
Or an eating disorder, be it over or under,
Society makes our humanity invisible to everyone else.
