The Blind Sight

The Blind Sight

A Poem by Undying Glory
"

Haha I know I haven't written anything in AGES...so here's something new. The title is from an event my school is holding to raise awareness for the blind, which is what this piece is about.

The Blind Sight

 

How does it feel

When night and day just feels the same

What was and what will be

Shrouded in shades of gray

 

The dark calls, it’s real

This heart of pain won’t heal again

All silence has is me

Bound inside and locked away

 

Maybe we’ll see

There’s so much more than we’ll ever know

Another dream

Worth fighting for, a distance to go

Maybe I’ll find someday

A way to be truly special

Like how your spirit shines over the night

 

The way home may never seem

The way I imagined things to be

But I know you won’t stop holding on

To all your hopes and deepest pride

Another door opens to another dream

To a place we’d never thought we’d feel

Take my hand, we’ll keep walking on

You don’t have to hold everything inside

Feel the sun and the wind upon your face

That darkness can never replace

 

How could this be

If no one else can look inside

And they look down on you

About a world you never knew

 

But though you bleed

And even if you can’t run and hide

You know I’ll be there for you

For everything you’re going through

 

The way home may never seem

The way I imagined things to be

But I know you won’t stop holding on

To all your hopes and deepest pride

Another door opens to another dream

To a place we’d never thought we’d feel

Take my hand, we’ll keep walking on

You don’t have to hold everything inside

Feel the sun and the wind upon your face

That darkness can never replace

 

Well we’ll may be jealous of what others have

And we’ll wish they cry while meanwhile we laugh

Yet could we face life if we’re torn apart

Could we face ourselves in the mirror of our hearts

So move on forever no matter what comes

For whatever’s here now and what might become

For all these things in life makes us who we are....

 

CODA

Maybe this world is so hard and cold

And you live your life in gloom

But even the depths of the night are touched

By the radiance of the moon

And light still touches the soul

Whenever people care

So stay strong and hold on to your hope

Forever I will be there

Perhaps how we respond to those with handicaps is a mark of our souls. I like your compassionate poem, esp these lines with their focus on touch: 'To a place we’d never thought we’d feel' and 'light still touches the soul'. Well done.
