If I could show you through my eyes,
my tears would paint you.
A picture with a whirlwind of blue,
if, for a day, you could see life-
through my blurred vision.
Your black and white world would cry in radiant hues-
if only I could open your eyes to the world I live in!
You would no longer be blinded by false dreams.
If you saw the world through me,
the world would be no more-
fairy tales, rainbows and magical golden sunbeams!
If only I could show you what it is like to be chained-
to endless fear and pain.
If, just once you could know-
what it is like to never hold sunshine,
to only catch rain.
But, instead, you look through ignorant eyes,
and wonder why I lay in silence-
with tears poring from my-
cloudy eyes!! …
