Use My Eyes To See

Seeing Is Believing

Give your eyes a rest

Put my eyes to the test

I have talked and you have listened intently

Now we will go one step further

You are on a trip you will never forget

Everything I know you know

Everything I feel you feel

You are now seeing life through my eyes

Don't worry you are not sleepy

See the world I see

You see the world in a different light

Your vision is distorted and nothing is clear

How are you going to function ?

 Now you have a whole new list of fears

Life you thought was a simple walk in the park

You never thought you would be walking in the dark

Is it a friend or foe coming your way?

You can't wait because you can't take that chance you might get hurt

Quickly move before you are seen

Be careful where you go

Your vision is dim and nothing seems right

Not sure of which way to go?

Watch your step for you begin to slip

Catching your balance trying not to fall

You  can't help it as you hit the ground

It is to late now you have scratches

To remind you of your mistakes

No time to wait

Get up quickly and lets get something to eat

I simple hamburger will fill the belly of hunger

After a few bites you stop

Was the hamburger cooked?

 I couldn't tell

I don't feel so good

I am not hungry anymore after a few bites

I think I will have some water

A refreshing drink

After a few sips I taste something in my water

What could it be?

I don't know

I can't tell

I put down the water and notice

The sun is annoying and so bright

I have to go for shade

 Aggrivated and annoyed by the light

The real strong brightness gives me a headache

So I head for shade but I hear a police siren

I see a man Lying still

Can I  help?

What if they ask

What did you see?

I might have to lie or I will become guilty

I have seen nothing I will explain

Then why did you come here to mug him and take his money

No you have it all wrong

I came to help him but now I must leave

Where will I go

Across the highway

Is there any taffic?

I hear a beep beep beep!

I better move out of the way or I will cause an accident

I will go down under in the train station where it is safe

Waiting for the next train to come

As the train stops to let people off

I get on and I am at peace

I am safe

I don't know where I am going and I am not sure where I have been

I dont know who I came to help or if the person is alive or dead

Who is still after me and I must keep on running

I couldn't tell you what I ate or drank

All I know is I am exhausted and I want to leave immediately

I can't open the door

It is locked

I keep trying each key and it won't fit

How long will I be here before help comes

Give me back my eyes and my life once more

I don't want to see what you see anymore

Carolina Muscle some things we don't appreciate until they are gone.Do we have to wait till we reach that moment in time or can we somehow someway interfere with are path and see before we can't see anymore.

Star Catcher that is one of lifes many surprises.We have so many gifts to experience but some times we choose to throw them away and have nothing instead.Human nature I guess.Maybe to much of a good thing.

I see this in such a differnt light, it is like most people who sleepwalk thorugh life and then they wake up one day it they are scared, they don't know who they are or where they are going, the must hurry to find something, but what? This is what I see in this outstanding poem, life is scary to many....your fan
