I stare at myself,

In

The

Mirror.

What do I see?

It is fear,

Provoking that of my

Spiritual feelings.

I stare at myself

In

The

Mirror.

What do I see?

It is the eyes

That scare me the

Most,

Their deep knowledge,

It looks,

Staring,

At the carnage

That is left of the Earth.

It is the eyes,

That watch the animals get

Murdered,

Murdered,

Not even for their meat,

But for their heads,

As trophies to look at,

When we eat.

It is the eyes

That have the deep

Wisdom,

To capture every moment

And hold fast.

IT is the eyes,

That do the bidding,

But the mouth and

Hands,

That toil,

And work.

It is the power

Of the eyes,

That lead,

Free,

And

Ruin.
