Walk With Your Eyes Closed

What if we all walked with our eyes closed?

Would we lose our social standards or would we find new ways to call each other ugly?

Would our skin tone still be juxtaposed?

Who would bleed the difference between dirty and lovely?

How many hearts would go exposed?

How many bodies would walk free, unbloodied?

 

Would our skin tone still be juxtaposed?

Who would bleed the difference between dirty and lovely?

What new acts of equality would be proposed?

How many dark days would then feel sunny?

How many hearts would go exposed?

How many bodies would walk free, unbloodied?

 

What new acts of equality would be proposed?

How many dark days would then feel sunny?

What rules of love would be imposed?

If you ran into a perfect soul, would you still feel lucky?

How many hearts would go exposed?

How many bodies would walk free, unbloodied?

 

What rules of love would be imposed?

If you ran into a perfect soul, would you still feel lucky?

What if we all walked with our eyes closed?

Would we lose our social standards or would we find new ways to call each other ugly?

How many hearts would go exposed?

How many bodies would walk free, unbloodied?
