Eyes: Stay in your nest!

Eyes, why can’t you stay in your nest, Always changing your latitude to know what’s wrong with the rest?

I think you have a deal with the mind, who helps you in judging people of different kind,

When the crimson, blue, green hues of the world, embrace you with a smile, Instead of being thankful you scorn at them by saying, ” Let me judge this world for a while!”,

Eyes, why can’t you stay in your nest, And leave out all the rest,

If you love seeing so much, why can’t you just see yourself in the mirror?, Instead of making people your mirror and pointing out different errors,

Have you lost all your honesty, And becoming a part of a travesty; Because it is better to be blind for life, Then to having eyes full of crude lies,

Eyes, why can’t you stay in your nest, And leave what is for the best!

  3. I havenโ€™t had much of a read yet (but I will), though did read two of your blog posts and I really love your expression! I did not expect much (as somehow I was directed here from my blog which I just started.lol). But as I always do when I see something worth reading I clicked โ€˜followโ€™.

    In this poem I admire how you manage to express the fact that there are so many ways of seeing (or viewing) things. And that most of what we see is not actually correct or itโ€™s warped by our own thoughts. Also, I like how you emphasize that a person should trust more than their eyes because as important as sight is it should not be the sole decision upon which decisions are made. But, at the same time I think you are saying that it is possible to โ€˜see too muchโ€™ ๐Ÿ˜ฆ โ€ฆSorry almost lost my self there. But I love reading (and analysing poems). I just think it is fascinating the things people can get out of poetry. Keep writing!

      Thanks a lot for your admiration and effort in analysing my poem to such an extent. Yes, these poems have different interpretations according to the thoughts of a person so whatever you are thinking is absolutely correct. I have written this but every time I read it I find something new in this so the cycle goes on and on for the discovery of its actual meaning.As many are there eyes in this world, so are their interpretations.
      Thanks a lot for stopping by.It is a great encouragement for me.๐Ÿ˜Š

  4. Very true. I personally get annoyed when writers say something like ‘but that is not what I intended’…when it’s out there it’s out there and as a writer you kind of have to learn to accept that the interpretations of your work will differ from person to person . But anyways, I really liked your poem.
