TURN YOUR EYES

 

Turn your eyes inward
Clear the debris
Find the love
And let the tears roll out of your eyes

Eyes that know
Unreasonable expectations
That somehow
Must come to pass

Come to pass
The blood in life
That mixes with
The tears

The tears
Falling on
The raw bone of emotion
Keeps us tethered
To this earth
And each other

Each other
For now
And earth
Are
Our fishbowl

As we pass
The shattered glass
And running water
Of change

Change
Running water
Shattering glass
Blood

We turn our eyes inward
Know this debris
And smile through the tears

It is then
Unreasonable expectations
Somehow
Come to pass
