Let's all be Blind

It seems to me
That everyone’s eyes
Have been stitched together.
Little black pieces of thread
Jutting between eyelids
Sealing of their sight from the world.
And so everyone not being able to see
Ends up spewing out words of hate,
Yelling and screaming at each other
Each person telling the other how to live
What is morally right and wrong,
What to believe.
What I don’t understand
Is how hard it is for them to see
That everyone is entitled to their own beliefs,
That there is no right way,
No singular truth.
Everyone is blind to everyone else’s perspectives,
What’s even worse is that
Everyone took a needle and thread, and
Sewed their own eyes shut,
Blinding themselves from the world.
