Your Eyes

No they don't remind me of the ocean

they are no where near a sunset 

or a mid-summers day

Your Eyes

they are a galaxy 

I stare into them and gasp for air

I search for answers that will always be unknown 

they are dew on a leaf

fresh and clean 

Your Eyes

they are no cliche 

not even a poem 

Your Eyes 

reflect so much more than any human eye could see 

This poem is about: 
My family
My community
Our world
