"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace." - Jimmi Hendrix

Brown eyes filled with tears
he watches her
and waits for this point in his life to come
slowly she cuts
blood worth a thousand years of pain flows
the sound of it like a million breaking walls

He tells a blue-eyed girl of these troubles
of his list
his ways of going
she pleads with him not to leave

Don't follow in her footsteps
we ask
child lost in this maze
of turmoil and loss
we are here for you

"Each man had only one genuine vocation--to find the way to himself. He may end up as a poet or madman, as prophet or criminal--that was not his affair... His task was to discover his own destiny--not an arbitrary one--and live it out."

I enjoy the way you focused on *eyes*.. they can tell alot about the person. There is a certain ambiguity to this that makes it all the more real.
