    we can't solve a problem if we can't see it...and we can't see it, if we won't open our eyes...

    empty cries unheard
    eyes wide shut
    nothing ventured nothing pained
    like a soul already crippled
    too badly eroded by the friction
    from past inflictions
    that stabbed at the heart
    jabbing various parts
    of a lessening will to live

    useless sighs…absurd
    too many dreams deferred
    just because
    there’s no hope-based solution
    to squirt into society’s eyes
    and show them that
    there are solutions
    to the multiple afflictions
    that fracture their stability…
    they have the ability—
    simply by refocusing
    their shifted view

    addled minds
    unprepared to find
    that such a majority
    would rather spend their time
    ignorant and at ease
    uncaring, letting life’s problems drop below their knees,
    and unfortunately, ultimately
    blind

    The pen that you wield is potent and speaks the truth. The mind behind the pen is sound and blessed. Keep scribing insightful and eye opening pieces.

    Brother, with words like that, my eyes can be closed and I'd still get the picture. You give me hope for our future.
