Third Eye (2016)
They say when God shuts
a door, he opens a window.
That’s fine and all, but when
some eyes are shut, the choice
of escape becomes the only
way to prevent being blinded
by other’s ill-perceived expectations.
It’s hard to fully grasp the sorry state
of affairs we have found ourselves in
through the use of false lenses.
Some eyes are never blinded
by the knowledge others despise,
even when exposed for the faults
one bears. Forced to the outskirts
of humanity’s tolerance, some eyes
lay wide open, all seeing, because
some eyes, some eyes never lie.
Out in the abyss, looking for signs that
cannot be seen outside one’s own mind.
If you take away the mind, you are
left with a hollow husk of humanity.
When you close your eyes, tell
me, do you still see the light?
A spectrum against your mind,
visualizations of dreams of
brighter days and greener pastures.
Even through the darkest of days,
imagination nurtures the future.
