OPEN YOUR EYES


open

Our eyes are closed to many things,

We look and don’t always find,

For things that are important,

To our eyes are blind.

 

Like natures wonderful creation,

It was created for all to see,

For all the things He did create,

Were meant for you and me.

 

Open your eyes to suffering,

Open your eyes to pain,

Open your eyes to understanding,

So that you may see again.

 

We only see what we want to see,

The rest is hidden from view,

Seek out the truth and you will find,

Clear vision will come to you.

 

For your eyes that once were blinded,

Are now open so wide and clear,

So don’t be blinded by deception,

Jealousy or fear.

 

We are all Gods children,

Equal in every way,

Only man has failed,

That is why we have problems today.

 

So don’t be short sighted,

Thoughtless and blind,

Just open your eyes and be honest,

Be truthful, loving and kind.

 

And remember as you go through life,

Your eyes are there to survey,

Do not stumble in the darkness,

Don’t let problems get in the way.

 

Just ask for help,

And you will find,

Those that now see clearly,

Were the ones who once were blind?
