#poem, «Now That We’ve Green Eyes»

(Image property of FBC/Omnia Caelum Studios Valencia/All Rights Reserved)

Now that we have left behind the challenges of youth,
the shadows on the wall,
the monsters in the hall,
the comforting embrace,
warm kisses on our face,
we face the other side of the coin we tossed so high
and wonder if we ever too will fly…

Three coins I’ve tossed into the air,
I ask I-Ching and
and I look back,
and darkened tears form in my eyes.

The past is past,
it’s gone,
replaced, and neatly placed within the wooden box
I keep in the darkest place that I could find,
that’s where I store time…

But now we have green eyes and
we still see misery run through the street.
We wonder why
mysteries form at our feet,
and why we hide the sorrow, pain and longing…

But we’ve green eyes,
bright and
to see through darkest night and
to tell the world we’ve seen the light…

C.2022, Francisco Bravo Cabrera, 12 NOV 2022, Valencia, España.
