My eyes see this planet

as a wondrous, awe-inspiring sphere

filled with colors and delights.

Amazed and excited,

my eyes long for sights never imagined

and  to see people so very unlike me.

These eyes value differences in beliefs,

shades of all colors, and various

thoughts, ideas, and feelings.

I have no eyes for hatred and mistrust

nor evil for the sake of evil;

of others who hate eyes varied from their own.

My eyes may be old but they see~

they see with the freshness of a newborn

eager to know, eager to learn, eager to understand.

I only wish that other eyes~

eyes like and unlike mine

could see the beauty that my eyes see.

~Rainey

Written for those who lost their lives because of those who cannot see.

 

An Angry Child February 12, 2013

Hot, pulsing anger pushes her

flows from her fingertips

like bolts of lightning.

She wears a daily  mask

of hatred and apathy

so no one can guess her reality.

But, if you look closely

you might glimpse in her eyes

the scared little girl inside…

Eight in years but thirty-eight in her soul

too wise for her young age

too broken to still be a child.

Beatings routinely rain down on her

a small punching bag for mom

rape is her unwelcome companion.

She knows only searing pain and hate

lashing out at school because

love and caring are foreigners.

All she really wants, all she really needs

is someone to see; someone to care;

someone to save her.
