Is there anyone who has never been 'blind'? I don't think so...


 I don't know about you but there was a time in my life when I was 'blind'. During that time of  'blindness' I did a lot of things that were wrong...but God allowed me to be put in a place where He could speak to me...and now... I See!

Oh, eyes...dear eyes...why have you forsaken me?

you have done nothing but lie to me

...in fact, you are the lie

Many days, evenings and nights you have looked

at me with total compassion

...saying, I love you

And will  do so...not just today and tomorrow but

forever...you have hurt me

...so bad that I no longer

Want my eyes...nor do I want anyone else to possess

them...oh, how I wish that I was blind...or

should I be angry with myself

...because I am blind?

We all have the choice to be blind or not. Many of us make the wrong choice but always we have the choice to correct our mistake - We have only to see it.
I do so love the tone of this marvellous literary portrait ...and ending with the question of self doubt - Inspirational!
Reviewed by JMS Bell
THERE ARE TIMES WHEN ONE WONDERS, '...HOW COULD I HAVE BEEN SO BLIND TO THE TRUTH??!!!' AND THE ANSWER IS, LOVE MAKES US 'BLIND'...SOMETIMES. A SPLENDID, ARTISTIC WORK. WELL DONE! LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...JOYCE(MOM)*HIS INSPIRATIONS
Reviewed by John Flanagan
This is intense and dramatic, but drama with proper control and that's what makes it worthwhile.
You are talented and gifted, Asa, and never never give up on life nor on writing; more, please, from your strong voice.

Looking...and seeing...are two very different things....as are listening and hearing. This is a poem that touches the heart on many levels.
Reviewed by Janet Caldwell
Wow, excellent use of language with a ton of meaning behind it. Asa, you are a true poet.

A double meaning in this intense heart felt poem ! It draws the reader in and I can feel his pain! As humans we make mistakes and often do not see what is before our eyes.....M
Reviewed by Richard Arrington
This is very deep with emotions. Some can not see the forest, because of the tree's. A very good write and thank you.
Reviewed by Ann Marquette
Yes, our blindness comes, many times, from what we don't want to see, what we refuse to look at. It can be difficult to allow ourselves to SEE the truth.
Good job Asa.
Reviewed by Christine Alwin
...we can look, but it is our choice to see, the blind may see more than you and me.
Reviewed by Georg Mateos
No one will be more blind that the ones that don't want to see.
