This poem is called “Eclipse”. Most of us like to signify light at the end of tunnel as a positive sign. How about an opposite take on believed notions, how about an argument against symbols of optimism…

Are you blind when you close your eyes

Or is it when you believe in lies

Are you blind when you don’t wish to see?

Or is it when you don’t agree

Are you blind,

Am I blind…

Is it only thoughts that aren’t defined…

Do you choose on how far you can see

Do you believe you can peek into mystery?

Is that the beam of light,

Fighting out from the lantern hold?

Or is it the darkness all around it

Waiting to unfold

What is it that I need now?

What is it that’ll make me glad?

Should I be happy to see the bright end of the tunnel?

But the blurred brightness only makes me sad…

Is it as dark to you as it is to me?

May be we should open our eyes and care to see.
