WHAT MY EYES SEE

 My eyes see differently than once a child did see,

 Reality of all that's around, a world of recognized 

 What my eyes see are not the coloring books and cartoons,

 Not the exploring of our neighborhood and childish ways.

 Not the magical world from a young boy's eyes lost 
 With time,

 What my eyes see are a different kind of beauty and 
 Some insanity.

 This world has changed along with the changes in me,

 What my eyes see are so many things that I never dreamed.

  1. Interesting poem! and it made me thinking philosophically, are the eyes the same? are you the same person if you have changes physically and mentally? Is there a single identity of “self” as time flows unidirectional? Is there something that is unchanged (like a soull) that we are cognitively incapable of perceiving, because of our limited ability of perceiving only 3 complete and 1 partial dimension? Or it’s just some old morphed information that our brain carries/remembers that we call as “self” ? the question still stands “To be or not to be ?”
