Painfull Sight

by Jesus Andrade (author's profile)


Painful Sight

If love is blind
Why was I forced
To witness this pain?
When I felt my eyes opened
Why I had woken them
From their sleep

I ignored them
Ignored their cares
As glistening tears
Began to cloud their path
By troubles of the past
Like dirt left on the moccasins
Of those removed from ancestral lands

I fell in love
And was forced
To see life
Through painful eyes.
