Third Eye - Poem by Fasika Ayalew

Beyond a façade my two eyes haven’t seen
I needed a third eye to see what is subtle
I needed a third eye to perceive intangibles
The finest pillars, the foundations of being
I needed a third big eye midst my brow
In a middle of desert that can see a rainbow
I needed a third eye with a perspective so wide
That can transcend the frontal façade
I needed a third eye with clear vision
Past glittery front my two eyes haven’t seen
Give me a third big eye midst my brow
I don’t care if I am called character in a fable
Least I will be seeing the abstract subtle
Mind, spirit and soul; the foundations of being
