Open Your Eyes

Open Your Eyes

By Rex Owen Waide, Jr.

An insane man stood idly by

Watching the people he knows

A blind man on the side of the road

Glares with a scowl on his face

A dumb man standing at the corner

Speaking of all the vulgar acts

A deaf man loudly crying into his hands

Trying to escape the words spoken

A crippled man running into the streets

Racing to rid of the demons that haunt

A rich man reaching out to people

Begging for happiness he could not buy

A dying man howling on the street

Praying to regain life that`s been taken

The insane man regained meaning of life

Watching the people he doesn`t want to become
