I see almost nothing.
I look for what matters to me
In my surroundings
And if I don’t find it
I am blind to almost everything
Else –
I will miss your perceived flaws
And I will see what I think
Is inherently wrong
With you –
Maybe it is wrong with me?
I don’t claim to be perfect
I am not even good
But that doesn’t stop me
From trying to be.
But, for my big eyes
I miss a lot of things.
Because I’m trying to find
A little bit of me in this
World –
I’m trying to find something
To connect with
Even when this place seems
Determined to hide it.
Even when the World
Seems to want to be filled
With islands.
Self-sustaining.
Standalone.
Need-nobody.
Equidistant.
And in my bid to find
Some meaning
I have tunnel vision
And I miss almost everything.
But in a way
I’m glad I’m blind
To some things.
It would be too much
To be constantly aware
And affected by everything.
I could never lose myself
In the things I Love
And bask in the glory
Of the reciprocal
And all of its beauty –
And I Hope you can see
My big eyes
Because in them
You can see
What a lot of people miss
From my smile
Because maybe
They are also looking for
Something.
And when they can’t
Find it
They ignore everything
Else –
