Open Your Eyes

the_eyes_have_itToday’s Lenten poem from Education for Justice is by Richard Guy Miller.

Open Your Eyes

We never really die.
We just open our eyes.

When they have seen
Their last limitation,
We turn and weep,
Or we awake from our dream,
Open our eyes and know…

We never really die.
We just open our eyes.

When we have seen
Our last limitation,
We turn and weep,
Or we awake from our dream,
Open our eyes and know…

We never really lived.
We just closed our eyes.
