There is freedom waiting for you
on the breezes of the sky,
and you ask “What if I fall?”
Oh, but my darling,
what if you fly?

~Eric Hanson


When you hold something interesting,

a child will spew "Let me see!"

and hold out their hands

because we have been taught

that you cannot see without feeling-

 

You cannot see if a girl is beautiful

without touching her body

and you cannot see if a boy is valuable

without feeling his flexed muscles.

 

We live in a world of fingers and hands

and we all know that

'sex comes before friendship'

just like the good book teaches.

Right?

 

We need to close our palms like we have our hearts

and open our eyes because the

nerves in our fingers are not connected

to the rods and cones in our eyes.

 

When you want to see something,

open your eyes and use your hands

to pry open your heart

Close your mouth and listen

because the world has so much to say

and still so much more for us to see.
