An assignment I was asked to do for university that evolved into a personal thought exploration.


Something most people have, and something most people forget they have.

Our society blinds us to one another, and yet seeks to draw us closer together.

People see each other less and less, and yet claim to be interconnected more than ever before.

We use glasses, contacts, lasers to help us see better, and yet sometimes we’re blind to what’s right in front

of our noses.

How sad a society that claims to see and know all, and yet causes a soul to depart unnoticed.

Yes, we can see the things of this world better with what we have made for ourselves.

But has that prevented us from seeing the things that really matter?

Can the wonders of technology be a hindrance to sight itself?

Is sight all we should be using to see?

Is sight really used for seeing what needs to be seen?

What does it take to see something that needs to be seen, but cannot?

Do the connections we form over the phone and on the net matter compared to the personal physical bonds

we have with one another?

Is interconnectedness fooling us into thinking we know everything that’s going on in a person’s life just by

messaging and emailing them, rather than talking to them face to face?

Oh, were it only possible to see what is now known before it happened.

Is visual sight the real sight, or is hindsight?

I mourn the one who has gone, unloved, unwanted and unseen, for I know that had things been done


Someone might still be alive.
