Y..... Unblind


Tonight,
I saw the nightly light
Creating a glorious sight
On a field of grass

Then i suddenly realised
That all day long
I had been blinded

Only now at night
I saw the glorious sight
Of nightly light
On the grass

I had not seen any glory
The whole day long
something must 've blinded me

Blinded by sunlight?
Or blinded by buzz?
By clutter and buzz
Of a busy day

Blinded by the rush
By a bout of anger
By things that matter little
I had missed the glory of the day

I had missed the glory
Of all the trees i'd passed
The glory of the grass
Of sea and skies

I had missed the glory
Of all the friendship
Of all the love and kindness
Of everyone i'd met

Oh, my God,
I must have been blind
Blind to all this glory
Blind to all this grace

Please, my God,
Unblind me
So tomorrow i will see
The world in all its glory

The glory of the skies and sea
Of the grass and trees
Of everyone around me
Please god help me see

    Thank you! I wonder if we are forced to keep the eyes closed. Otherwise, I suppose we could not survive in this world we may need to be half blind, in order to follow the society's rules and to keep in control we may have to chain our souls. Are the most heavy chains those braided with love? Maybe, would I have to learn the hard way as you say that love is only a chain of very light wings to fly with the winds? ! Your poems are always inspiring, love them dearly, thank you for share! (Report) Reply

    Often a situation, the blind see and the deaf hears....because they see and hear with their hearts. Beautiful poem Hans! A 10. (Report) Reply
