New Eyes - Poem by Angelica Duardo

With new eyes to see
You see yourself as you truly are
With new eyes to see
Your dreams point to unknown tasks

You are a universe to be discovered
Unfold your petals for a wiser power
You’ll find the way to be transformed
A broader road will soon unfold

With new eyes we are all born
But they soon transform into sandy stones
Hurt by the rough stains of time
We fill the oceans with our rocky tears and sighs

With new eyes to see
The world seems more concrete
With new eyes to dream
People don’t seem fulfilled

Open your mind
Spread your senses up high
Find yourself a new pair of eyes
Look at yourself as mighty and strong

The world is mighty and ruinous
Open your eyes, don’t be ingenuous
Dream all the dreams you want to believe
Open your heart, help this world breathe some relief

With new eyes to see
We see ourselves as we really are
With new eyes to see
We see the dangers we have all lived in
