My Eyes Are Open

     My eyes are open
To the way things are now
     My eyes are open
To the bonds that have been keeping me bound.

     My eyes are open
Not only to what I can see, but also for what I feel
     My eyes are open
To the unfair, to the unreal.

     It was dark at first
And there was an undeniable thirst
     for knowledge to understand
What was happening, the old
     And tattered plan

I didn't know how to describe
     Everything I was feeling inside.
I had to sit down
     look to places where happiness could be found
Tweak my mind, make tough decisions
     As I looked up, I suddenly
had clear vision....

And now I know what is for me IS for me
No longer shall my sight be darkened
Now, I see clearly, my eyes are open.

(What the heck was I thinking when I wrote this??? OMG but OK)

It has been misplace, misused & misunderstood
It has been taken lightly, destroyed, killed & taken for granted
It can be earned, won & deserved
It can be given, received & denied
Many have tried to regain it
Even more have lost it completely
It is wanted & it is refused
It can be given with limitations
or completely with faith
It can be blindly given
or tentatively received
It is, and can be, many things
but without love,
trust is really nothing at all.
