and how people always think they know you, 

You’ve been walking the ocean’s edge, holding up your robes to keep them dry. You must dive naked under, and deeper under, a thousand times deeper!~ Rumi

but they forget they're looking out their own eyes~

To hold, you must first open your hand. Let go. ~Lao Tzu

seeing you through the glass

The creative process is a process of surrender, not control.
~Julia Cameron

of their own making~

They are the chosen ones who have surrendered.

that is scarred with years of resentments,

The greatness of a man's power is the measure of his surrender.
~William Booth

fogged with past deep disappointment,

“Self-interest is but the survival of the animal in us. Humanity only begins for man with self-surrender.” – Henri Frederic Amiel

pitted with suspicion,

 I cannot always understand His way, but I am content in the realization that He knows what is best. That is surrender.~Daya Mata

scratched with guilt,

Nothing is needed on your part to be done. Only one thing: a deep trust and surrender. ~Osho

so even if these were the best of times,

Surrender, surrender, but don't give yourself away. ~ Cheap Trick

they wouldn't be able to see it, unless they looked through a fresh lens.

And let the past mistakes, including the ones you think are not known, be water gone, under the bridge. All is already known, and already forgiven. Let it go, let it leave, let it heal, I have. (No wait, you can't know~ except that I do know, I did. I needed to feel life, so I said nothing.) You are not alone in transgression; you walked in while I was screaming, I am accountable as well. It took all I had then, all that was in me, to go and meet you there. And then you crossed my boundaries, and then you acted like I crossed yours~ and then I was incensed. So the flames grow higher, and the fuel that burns is hidden by the glow of the fire itself, and all that is felt is the heat. To understand the intensity, the fuel must be known. ~Sometimes terrible storms are what were needed to cleanse the soul. For Farimir's Sake it doesn't matter, there is not enough time, let's just dance, and feel life, and celebrate magic... I truly believe in you~ lighten up! I wanna go camping and burn stuff! :)
