Our eyes are portals to sadness.
But also to love.
There’s whole worlds in our eyes,
Some more visited than others.
Some we’ll never visit.
And some we have no intention to visit
But somehow, we stumble across them.
Walking along the river looking up at the sky and watching the trees sway in the wind
Wondering where we’re going to end up next.
Our eyes can tell a whole story without having to speak a single word.
They try to rid themselves of sadness and misery.
Pouring out all they have,
Draining all their taps and energy,
They clear the space for better things to come.
Our hearts swim in the deep deep ocean,
Venturing into the unknown.
They find creatures that can’t even be fathomed by our imagination.
They light up the darkness that we’re so engulfed by
And swim with us on our journey.
Keeping us away from dangers.
But sometimes there’s dangers they can’t protect us from.
Ones that entice,
Ones that are utterly unpredictable,
Ones that seem harmless at first,
But then they start to rip out our heart to play catch.
They start to kick our fragile hearts,
They start to bend and weaken.
But they’ll never break,
No matter how hard they try,
No matter how much it feels like they have;
They’ll never break.
We’re stronger than that.
Because we have galaxies in our eyes and oceans in our hearts.
