Poem - Open ur eyes

Poem - Open ur eyes
- AnupR

From the cradle to the grave
Will you be a slave
For you aren't blind
And yet, choose not to see
For you aren't deaf
And yet, choose not to listen
For you aren't dumb
And yet, choose not to speak

Listen to reason
See the light
Be wise and humble
And at least try to embrace the truth

Accept ...
You are weak
You never were free
You probably never will be

If ...
You love your chains
You enjoy the pain
You enjoy the sympathy
You don't crave salvation

So ...
Go about your business
Keep building castles in the air
Never spare a thought for anyone else
Not even for the only one
... who really does care

... and never open your eyes ..... again

yes ... the ramblings of a confused poet ... bear with me world ... too many questions ... very few answers ... I need some time

Awesome!! Sad, we are birds trapped in a cage. Where is that stupid key!? Either people hid it, I can't see it, or I choose to not look for it. I guess I am the latter...

but if u see too much, hear too much, speak too much, u wont see what u really need to see...sometimes it's best to be blind, deaf and mute...just my opinion :)

u write so well Anup!

Yeah, the world can be so tough and confusing at times. But hey, just remember that you're not alone and that you can always be strong if you know who to call. ;)
