I'm on a long journey from Sun up until sun down My mission is to try and Keep my vision around I suffer from retinal detachment In both of my eyes Was almost blind forerver But to my surprise Through years and months Of lazer surgery My retinas are no longer detaching But it's still a long journey for me I look around at this world People are so cold and grimy When all I really want Out of life is to see Through the pain I still strain But manage to find a way To keep strong and have vision Each and every day The surgery helped me see but My vision is very poor So I will continue on my journey Until I can't see anymore FOR MATT CALIRI JOURNEY CONTEST
