Eyes and ears, m’dear

by Devina

Hear the things,

they speak with their eyes

Words are a lair’s arsenal,

look just how lightly they step

around promises, and juggle emotions

Look within you for your truths,

see what injustice strikes you like a fist,

understand what you stand for.

The outside, of many things, is a facade

the innards, soul and belief belie this

Flesh and bone, masks and smiles

housing within a starlight light,

or void blackness

Knock the barrel, hear the echos

turn from the rot

Life was never designed

to be easy, it’s supposed to

be hard to make you strong

Travel, talk to strangers,

Notice the unnoticed

Admire the flowers

Take action, with forethought

Don’t hesitate to be kind

Be happy for happiness’ sake

and be generous, share it

like clean, fresh rain on

your fellow man’s parched field.
