Don't you see the light
Shining upon you?
Why do you obsess
On the shortcomings,
The imperfections,
Revealed by sudden
Luminosity?
Intolerable?

Perhaps the darkness
Suits you better then,
Where flaws are hidden
And you cannot see,
Stumbling in the dark
And oblivious
To reality.
But now you've seen
And can't forget,
Though you have tried,
The scars and the marks
Acquired while blind.

Don't stare at yourself.
Contemplate instead
Radiance received
And the light that came
Free and undeserved.

------
"I must create my own system, or be enslaved by another man's"-William Blake

Don't know why
why, that is, I find your pieces so appealing. I mean, it's obviously well done, but so are lots of poems. There's just seems to be something in the way you write that really grabs me. I can't place it. owell. loved the piece.

Wow
Wow, this is good. I'm pretty sure about what the meaning is but I'm going to keep that to myself because I'm wrong more than half of the time. Keep up the good work.
