Covered Eyes

My eyes were so covered for so long

Longing to believe what the parents told us

We’ live a long healthy life, get married, have kids…

My eyes were so covered

Concealed by what they told us

But dark showed through

Opening my eyes for the first time

Telling me whole truth, not whole lies

Dancing lights

Music pulsating though my body

Moving out of beat

Stumbling, bouncing, bubbling

Everything swaying way to way

Slowly opening my eyes
