I Am Blind

              I wake up blind. Unable to see.

                 What has the world come too?

           The destruction and poverty, does that amount to me?!

            I have shunned my eyes away from this world.

                 Afraid of being sucked in its enmity.

              How can I have survived with this hate in this world.

                      The amount of pain and hurt has blind me to the fullest.

                              I do not see, the killings, the tears from the hurt,

                                               the homeless and the richest. I am Blind.

                                                       I am Hurt. I cannot see the pain, and

                     recklessness that we brought onto our next generation.

                                                                   So I am Blind!

    Excellent! Blind and deaf to it all indeed. And if you truly are blind to the corruption and misery, what do you see, shutting your eyes to escape the enmity?
