AT TIMES I AM BLIND
Open your eyes!, this is said from with inside as I seem at times blind,
There is so much to see but I must confess that what is important sometimes escapes my sight.
A blind man can not physically see but learns to observe more than a man with vision,
A man with no sight asked of me, tell me young man what things with your eyes do you see.
There are at times many things I wish not to see, pain and destruction from the world today,
What I asked was that which you see not a thing about wishes or that which you do want to see.
I see the mountains, the ocean, the sky, and all there is of beauty that god placed down upon the earth,
Yes!, at times I am blind to all of these things just as they are taken for granted by most every man.
You are a blind man, so who do you think you are trying to give me a lesson or to teach me,
Young man, are you a follower of those who are of negative ways? take responsibility for yourself.
I am blind but in my time I have seen so much more than your seeing eyes can ever dream,
You are at times very blind, your eyes are open but it is a man’s mind that is truly closed.
