Shiny Eyes: a poem about the world we live in.

1. Shiny Eyes

The shiny eyes that I once knew

Shiny eyes, what happened to you?

The eyes that sparkled under the moon

are now just dull and full of gloom

Once so happy, wild and free

Did the truth catch up to thee?

Your shiny eyes saw what was real

and how this world just does not heal

Crimes and deaths and drugs and more,

all happening right outside your door

What was once just a story on the news,

is now a reality you cannot refuse

It's the pain inside that will hit

when you realize that you cannot change it

It's the ugly truth of our lives

fogging and polluting the shiny eyes
