A Poem by Gavin Keary

when you let your vision go out of focus...


When your vision blurs,

do you shrink away from what you cannot see?

Do you embrace your unseen death with open arms?


when you cannot see clearly,

do your friends leave you to forage for yourself?

Do they taunt you, thinking your hearing is lost too?


When your sight returns,

does the world look the same as before?

Do the people act as if nothing happened?


That is when you acknowledge one ultimate truth.

the world through blind eyes is more vivid than with clear sight.

Some of my major inspiration would have to be my life in general, other people's lives (I am fascinated by other people's lives). Authors that I look up to would be Tolkien, Poe, Spider Robinson,.. more..
