To Lose Your Sight - Poem by Alyssa George

To lose your sight would truly be,
The most intense of tragedy.
Just think of all you would not see,
If you lost your sight like me.

All the birds flying, you'd view not,
Miss out on how the children fought.
How the trees staggered in the wind,
And how the passing drivers sinned.

The sun shines so bright but you don't know,
Don't see how your surroundings glow.
How water glistens at the beach,
Like sparkling diamonds out of reach.

But when you're older you'll figure out,
The worst is still to come no doubt.
Cause when you die you won't have seen to remember,
The smile of a friend or family member.

    hmm, good work. i would just say make the ending stronger- tie it up to the start & your opening theme. did you mean sight? as opposed to site. anyway this reminds me of a line from a song by Arcade Fire- 'i scratch your name across my eyelids- you pray for rain, i pray for blindness...' alright, keep it up! best care, sus.
