The Eyes Tell All

Through the eyes of david's star
I taste burning flesh in an icy air
My bones ache of forced labored hell
Windows covered in black disguises
Silence to cover the race of my flesh

Through the eyes surrounded by cherry blossom
My ears ring of dropped execution and hatred
Names that haunt my kind into the future
Land destroyed by murdering lovers flying above
A time of cold nights and empty rice bowls

Through the eyes of a lost princess
The world is unknown and frightful
No family to call my own, no memory
Am I a woman of crown and jewels
Or a wanderer of pretend and mystery

History through eyes not of my own
Sends thoughts of wonder through my head
Making curiosity dwell deep inside my soul
How deep it twists my open mind
Looking through the eyes of another
Seeing that which is not familiar
If only to live it, even the horrible
How filled ones life would be
How full one's memory would be
What a life
What a history

I wrote this poem because I try hard to look through the eyes of other people's lives. I liked how it turned out and I hope you enjoy it!
