Blind “I”

Blind “I”


by James Paulin

infinite universe out beyond

swirling round me of which I’m quite fond

global issues encompass mankind

I ignore them with my carefree mind

our nation votes with each earnest voice

declining, I give away my choice

avoid poor, desperate, hungry souls,

consumed in reaching financial goals

let someone else care for social ills

I say “Not this time with all these bills”

don’t have time for elders left alone

or troubled teens without any home

inner conversation left unsaid

only comforting my pride instead

to find any way to joy and peace,

I self prescribe a conscience decrease

my senses report that I exist

to seek purest purpose, I resist

One thought on “Blind “I”
