The curse and blessing of blindness

Is not only curse
But blessing
In disguise too
If one misses
Beautiful faces
Wonders of nature
Sky touching
Flowing rivers
Blooming flowers
Colorful birds
Innocent children
One does not
Have to see
Hungry children
Sick old people
Gruesome murders
Breaking accidents
Disfigured faces
Hate and jealousy
Black hearts
Impure minds

Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?

It kindles all the sunset land:
