Blind Men Give Us Kindness - Poem by Derek Kuborn

Please take me like a grain of salt.
I'm detrimental to everyone.
You see, I'm void of love in all its blessings.
I only regret the smiles I've given.
Dead rotting men live upon my shoulders
Buried in ships of my brethren.
My waking eyes will only see suffering.
But I disguise myself with masks I'm given.
I will decay like all of the others
And not float up to a better future.
I will become the world that is around you.
You'll breathe me in when you feel lonely.
I've foreseen all of your desire.
You wish for love that will make you quiver.
And I'll stand up to give you courage
To help you realize the faith you were given.
My eyes will cave like ships that are sinking.
And I feel them sink until they're lost forever.
Blind men will only bring you kindness.
I've asked them to spare everyone you were given.
