Salve Victores
"I want it to be seen." = "Quod id videbitur volo", I think/puto.
"please" = "amabò te", "si tibi non molestum est", "quaeso", "te imploro", "si tibi placet", "si placet", and/or you would give orders or urge in the subjunctive, not the imperative or indicative. Et per modum subjunctivum, non per imperativum neque indicativum, horteris.
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.

flebile nescio quid queritur lyra, flebile lingua murmurat exanimis, respondent flebile ripae

What Benissimus gives is indeed both better and shorter.
Et melius et brevius quidem est quod suggerit Benissimus.
