Eyes That Blind - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

eyes can blind
and blind disastrously

it is not that they
have not been
given enough love
it's you you who
have been
pampered

take away
those lenses
see them through
another's eyes
you would come
to the fact
that when you cannot
see the world from
another viewpoint
you are as good as blind
