Favorite Quote:
"Imagine all the people living life in peace
You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you will join us
And the world will live as one"
-John Lennon


Bright irises of infinite hues

What they see, they cannot choose

It's innate, a feeling

But certainly not bad

A different way of seeing

That's more vibrantly clad

 

Though, what is done to them

Dims their color

Sometimes it seems

They were made to suffer

 

But they dont fade to black and white

As many think they might

 

But some do go blind

Not seeing at all

Not blue or purple

Or any colors of the fall

 

They are unseeing

Letting nothing in

Until they rip out their eyes

To end the pain

Of a colorless world


The author's comments:

When people see and experience the world in a different way there always seem to be some kind of backlash against them, which eventually dims a person's world view.
