An Open Mind

All I need...

An open mind.

All I need...

Are open eyes.

All I need...

An open heart.

An open mind knows of a different world.

A world that was and is and will ALWAYS be here.

A world that does not show on TV.

A closed mind sees only one world.

A world with filters to cover the ugly truth.

A world that is glamorized on TV.

An open mind that is not in denial for what goes on in the world.

An open mind that opens the eyes of others around me.

An open mind that shows these eyes what is on the other side.

The other side of their pretty painted picket fence.

Open eyes can see the terror and pain behind happy faces and smiles.

Closed eyes see nothing behind the wide smile.

An open heart gives love and happiness to those around them.

Appreciation and glee to those around the world.

A closed heart weeps silently in a dark room.

Their mind, never open.

Their eyes, always shut.

Their heart, never loves.

All I need...

An open mind.
