Blindfolded
I am led to the asphalt
And blindfolded I stand
Hoping these men
Will pave the way

Blindfolded
It is so very clear
My future is bland
Without a hand to hold again
I am a mere part of their display

And blindfolded,
I am a woman
There is one high command
That must be followed despite deign
Ready to whittle away

And blindfolded
I am blind
To the power
Obscured by
This blindfold

Wow! Very powerful poem. I like the significance of the blindfold, and its two-fold meaning.
