The open eye can see a lot

each tear that drops

of those forgot,

The memories that somehow faded away

even some that are here to stay


The open eye can hear alot

each silent cry

that speaks so loud

each person that whines ” why am i alive?”

wondering if they will survive


The open eye can say a lot

scream , shout and yell i’m here

They don’t even gotta talk just show them you care

That the world still got some things  that’s fair

yea, I know its hard and yea you fighting strong just never forget i’m always near


So if you can

Open your eyes

The world kinda needs you

    I liked this poem a lot. I appreciate that you sort of had the theme of “the eyes are the windows to the soul” but never blatantly said it. You also kind of reversed it where the eye is looking out and seeing things that others can’t. Similar to what Em said, I love the range of emotion you put into this.

    I really like how deep this poem goes. It really spoke to me and i can really connect to it. They rhyming is great too! Its both sad and uplifting. I really enjoyed it 🙂

    I love how you use the perspective of the eye.i also like that you talk about thinks people see that the other perso most likely won’t want them to see.
