Have you seen her?

Of course you have,
how can one’s eye
not
be drawn to such
incandescent
beauty?

But have you seen
the glow of her
soul,
have you experienced
the power of her
heart?

Oh, that’s right,
excuse me,
I forgot 
you
don’t believe in things like that.

All you see is a fine piece of ass.

You’re selling this girl short,
there’s so much
more
to her.

I’ll explain
in a way you might
understand what I’m getting at.

Do you know how scientists
expose hidden planets?

They calculate and go after
their gravitational pull,
proving they exist,
even if
they’re not able to see them.

You can apply this knowledge.
Acknowledging her heart
and soul
doesn’t have to be
a matter of simply believing.

Now the next time you see her,
look at the people around her.

See how they look bigger,
happier,
more at peace.

She naturally emits invisible rays
of her loving nature,
a powerful
positive energy,
it causes the people around her
to grow in her presence.

They become the best version
of themselves, and to me
that –
is the embodiment of ‘good’.

To me, that is the essence of 'she’.

Remember this, the next time you
look at her, so the next time
we speak,
you won’t sell her short
when I ask you,

“Have you seen her?”
