"an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind"
but is this such a terrible fate?
if we were blind
imagine all the hidden things we would see
without the terrible blindfold of vision
of the seven-second judgement that plagues our senses
what new beauty would we discover in
the darkness that would surround us?
if prettiness was a handshake
if attractiveness was found in personal pheromones
if people fell in love with the sound of a voice
how many more smiles would we give
if their instant affection was bestowed ignorant of
for our true blindness
is from the lenses of prejudice forced on us by our abacinated history
if we close our deceitful eyes to it all
we can see the true beauty of the world
