those eyes

Saturday, August 13, 2016

































it was all so dark
and dim
and strange
empty yet somehow complete
bright but pitch black
one eye saw color
the other
did not
you close one eye

keeping the other open
and you came to see
something the others can't
almost as if you're special
different
weird
but not complete
those who see just color
they're complete
those who see just grey
they're complete
living in a world
where half and half
unite
you're given a gift
to see both worlds
use the darkness
and the light
they both have advantages
and disadvantages
use the grey
and the color
make a picture
paint it with both
something will come of it
hold on tight

    1. I felt like this poem was depicting my feelings as a Christian - seeing the world through two different views. and btw, perspective is like my favorite word <3333

      Delete
    2. Yes! I had that same thought!!
      I love perspective too! Well, I like big words in general :)
