In Her Eyes

The whole world is seen in her eyes.

In eyes that have much to see,

Yet have shown so much emotion

And thorough disappointment

That they know of more than is seen outside.

 

They have seen dreams broken,

Hopes lost on the ashes in the wind,

Happiness shattered like a mirror.

They wish for only good to come,

But know inside that it will never come.

They have unknown potential

That is hidden away by life and society

To never open to the harm that has been done.

 

And yet the whole world is seen in her eyes

In the eyes that have seen only pain

And oppression in the world to that point.

They are closed due to nurture not nature.

They can open, and will someday,

And until then the world is invisible to us.
