CLOSE YOUR EYES! By Ibekwe Ifeanyi

Written by Editor

Close your eyes and you’d see
You’d see things which are of golds worth
You’d feel emotions draw forth
Close your eyes and dream
Dream of the day which is yet to be
Dream of the world where you wish to live
Dream of the life without sympathy
A place where there’s no need for wars
Where we all embrace the love within nature’s wall

Close your eyes and dream
Dream of when we will wake from this our illusive dream
Dream of when humanity will live in peace
Close your eyes and feel the length of love from the breeze
The depth of air as we breath
Close your eyes and imagine
Imagine love just as it should be
Without recompense and you’d see

Close your eyes and think
Think of how extreme we’ve gone
How bitter and callous we’ve become
Think of the weapons we’ve invent
Out of hate, fear and contempt
Close your eyes and you’d see
You’d see beauty all over you
Colors made to gladden you
The blue-sky hovering over you
You’d feel the earth crawling unto you
And nature there to marvel you
Close your eyes only if you can
Open it only but against evil!!
