The Brave, the Blind, and a Child's Smile

The Brave, the Blind, and a Child's Smile

A Poem by Rea

I write by candle light

Drawing depths of soul upon paper

Awakening excitement

Considering possibilities


Intelligence attracts my wandering eye 


Darkness creeps outside this ring of light

And peers into tomorrow

A world I create 


Raindrops scatter over that which we can’t change

Only hope to alter

Shallow waters do not impress upon

Those who fail to recognize 


Beauty creates and destroys

All who seek;  

Changes all who avoid


Perception is the work of fiction

Fantasy tarnishes in the face of sanity

Each is individual

As heat is to flame 


The brave ride upon wings of circumstance

As blind seek guidance through

Softer realms of wisdoms shelter


Honesty lies within a child’s smile

Societies unraveling

Those inside look upon prisoners

Of their own creation


Truth hides behind those who claim to see it

A struggling vibrancy that leads the weak 

Doubt envelops those who seek solitude

Who listen regardless of fear
