These eyes that try to look all around

which cannot see more than the superficial

parts of the people

but see what they want to see.

Part of my body

what I own an essential part of me,

these eyes that guide me every day of my life.

These eyes that nobody can control

that sees the beauty and the crudeness

of the world

which prepare me

for the though journey of life.
