These Eyes

18 Apr
 Life always begins,
  with eyes firmly shut.
Unaware and innocent.
 Later, there will be no Blink.
No momentary relief.
 
Eyes should open slowly,
  awakening gently.
Allowing time to grow.
 to form The Necessary-
The Protective Film.
 
But sometimes,
  the lids are peeled back.
Awakened rudely,
 before the time to rise.
These Eyes of Mine.
 
And all the [un]fortunate ones,
  do not have the shield
of seeing and wanting
   only the surface.
The Cloudy Vision. 
 
 No, We see beyond the charade,
  and past the Illusion.
Further and deeper,
  until the suffering is blinding.
And The Pain becomes Ours.
