Far Beyond My Eyes - Poem by Emmanuel Odum

Far beyond my eyes,
above the many lies
or truth if i must sigh
i see the heavens cry.

Far beyond my eyes,
beyond the gambling dice
i see a land so high
where birds will never fly.

Far beyond my eys,
before the melting ice
where hope will never die
and love and angels ply.

Far beyond my eyes,
my dreams will realise
that songs will never lie
but, only when i try.

    I enjoyed this so much, I wanted to read more.
    I suppose that's a flaw, but how does one complain about such a vision?
