in the short time that i could see
i saw
i didn't know that i would go blind
but i knew
as a child does
that everything is beautiful
and special
each color
so i studied them
but then i went blind
it wasn't my fault
or anyone's actually
i guess it was just a slow process
the doctors said
it should have happened sooner
but it didn't
i know that was God
letting me study a bit longer
cause i wasn't ready
for such a large test yet
but now I can still see
in a way
which i studied for that short while
and i treasure it
so remember your sight
it's a gift

literally inspired by a tv show episode 


  1. As someone who has 20/400 vision and didn't know it for years (seriously), I kind of feel like I was given the opposite of this. When I finally went in and got my questionable vision checked (and EVERYBODY was shocked at where it fell, because I had never had any problems navigating through life (of course, I never drove and I was homeschooled, so that helped; no signs or chalkboards had to be read from far away)), I was given glasses that have changed everything! Colors are so vibrant when they aren't blurred. Tree bark has such different textures. Fur on animals is captivating. And I still can't get over how clear the stars are! I feel like I was given a gift that many people get before they know how priceless it is. Some people are sorry I missed out on so much; but I like to look at it as I get to experience all this for the first time when I truly appreciate it :).

    1. WAHHHHT.
