Do You Love You?

Blunt instruments with which we handle ourselves
Lose the precision required in expressing love
Seeing worth greater than all the worlds riches
In the eyes of one looking to the soul within
Pandemonium in the effort exerted to see, to be
A particular being measured by met expectations
A checklist marked to the level of success
What is this life that we live for all of the others
And fail to remember who should come first
Empathy and caring in much too scarce supply
For the reflection of the heart falling by
