Poem - You're so blind

Updated on May 27, 2011

You visited once in a blue moon

You never saw the good

You judge - when God is the only judge

You ordered

You manipulated

You blackmailed

You abused power

Of course he cracked

All you could do was tower

Gleefully proclaiming your righteousness

You and your orders trampled

You hurt my family

Cutting me so deeply in the process

You will never know it

You didn't want to know it then

You won't know it know

Just keep on shutting your eyes

Blindly busting the precious jar on the potters wheel

About - You're so blind

This was written over ten years ago by me, I have slightly edited since its original write in my artistic diary.

Where the subject of my poem is blind, not physically, its a selective blindness. This caused my eyes to be open, and my semi sheltered life to be questioned and really begin a soul searching process that was quite unpleasant.

      Thank again ahorseback! I have moved away from this. Thanks for you lovely words of critique!! I have heaps more written from this time in life, I didn't know whether to publish or not I think I might keep on with it (I also want to stop having to drag around the massive books they are written in!)
