What the world looked like,

through the youth in my eyes,

was a future opened wide,

to all the love I had inside;

to the hatred I defied from birth,

to the trees and Mother Earth,

the thrashing seas and the sandy dirt,

things not lost to how my heart works;

on how my heart bleeds out endlessly,

on how my mind races relentlessly,

how my vision gets glued  quite attentively,

to the shiniest, most reflective thing;

what the world now looks like,

through the blood in my eyes,

something darkened and denied,

too dreadful to care to describe.
