Blurred Vision

My eyes tend to water, they tend to bleed, and at times they tend to peer off into thin air.

The terror that I see tends to make my eyes bleed.

Look into my eyes, let me show you what it is, that I see.

I see love, I see pain, I see poverty, I see fortune, and I see fame.

I see racism, I see hate, I see the truth, and I see faith.

I see confusion, I see clarity, I see lies, and I see sincerity.

I see death, I see life, I see a husband, and I see a wife.

I see children, they love to play.

I hear them calling out to their mothers' and fathers', they're begging them to stay.

I see their mothers' and fathers' however,  the last time  I seen them was yesterday.

I hear their children crying because their time had come and on this earth, they could no longer  stay.

I see their tears, I feel their fears, and I understand their pain.

How can I see these things, you ask?

I simply cannot explain.

However, these are the things that I tend to see.

When I close my eyes, this is the time when my vision becomes less blurry.

I can see however, at times I wish that my vision would stay blurry.

I desperately need some specks; however, I am afraid that this will only alter my vision.

No! I am not blind nor do I require the assistance of a service dog; although, my vision may not be 20/20 I can assure you that I have the ability to see.

This vision may not be laser sharp vision however, I am convinced that I may possess some form of super vision.
