Blind Is Pain by Kyle Roberts

Blind is Pain



If you’re alive, you know you have to see.

Everyone, though, is different from me.

I always hear how people talk about stuff and others.

I feel left out, because I can’t see color.

If just one day I could see like the rest

That one and only day, it would be the best.



When I was born, dark is all I saw

I was so sad, the tears began to fall.

I couldn’t see, I could only hear the noise

From a hurt little kid, I began to hear a voice.



Something kept telling me it would be alright

I cried out, NO! because even in the day it seems like night.

I want to be normal for once in my life

The sight of not seeing brings only pain and strife.



Every day I wake up and it’s dark

I hear children’s voices, and the dog bark.

My life is sad, it feels washed down the drain

That’s why every day I say being blind is pain.
