Eyes Wide Open

                             Open your eyes
                             And you will see
                         What all this negativity 
                             Has done to me

                            You have blinders on 
                           Running your own race
                             Why can't you see
                         What you have done to me

                           You might win the race
                               Have all the glory
                           Be smothered with roses
                              Be the lead story

                           What you have done
                              Makes no sense
                             You left us behind
                            To fend for ourselves

                            Don't open your eyes
                             We know you won't
                             Keep running away
                               We will be okay

                           Our eyes are open wide
                               We can surely see
                                 We will survive
                          We will chase our dreams

                                Go win your race
                          Find the answers you seek
                                 We will win ours
                            And are in a better place

    what a great poem this is, as if written to someone not even worthy of your advice. btw, Muscatine, IA. is my hometown, not where I live now. I did not hear about the tornado. Lucky for me, I never saw one in my years there.

    Oh Tim think so many people go around blinkered and negativity spreads. Excellent write as ever my friend. Hugs Jan xxxx
