eyes

Eyes so young
newly aware
anything outside
a mother's care.

Eyes full of hope
innocent and bright,
no thoughts of the
demons that hide
in the night.

Eyes wide open
things seen clear
nothing but darkness
and then the fear.

Eyes tightly shut
fighting the urge
to let in the dark
in one single surge.

The dark dissipates
sun lights up the skies
once again it's safe
to open your eyes.
