Blinded

Thanks to Mistwalker for the photograph.

when my eyes are closed
I see no war
starvation
death or taxes
I see no broken children
forgotten and
ignored by masses
there are no flowers
sunsets
smiles
communities and shady isles
swimming holes
sunny days
fearful eyes that look away
tear streaked faces
hollow guise
no
instead
I shut my eyes
