Why can't you see me ?
Not the vision of me
Not the talk of me
Nor the expectation of me
Why not just me ?

Not a stat in your chart
Or your overachievers
Whose art is to charm
And beguile their believers
By lying to win.

It's the here and now
Which is what I am
The past is a fond friend
I look on now and then
But none of us know
What our futures may be
So stop
Don't judge
And just see me.
