In Your Eyes - Poem by Lydia J. McFarland

In your eyes, I see
a child longing to be free.
The child sees no color,
but feels we should love one another.

In your eyes, I see
the question;
Why put one through so much misery?

You are free,
yet you keep the child imprisoned.

In your eyes, I see
guilt, hurt, anger and fear.

Yet you do not come forth,
Why do you procrastinate?
Is this child a part of you, your innerself?

Let the child be free,
do not pity it with your
heartaches and complaints.

In your eyes, I see
that the child,
grows weak and withers away.
