My Eyes Are Opened

Written by Jacob Ibrag

I read you like a book. Text etched into

stone. Word after every word, unoriginal. Thoughts

I knew you’ve harbored before speaking them. A program,

nothing more than a design in the system. Unable to stretch

the limbs you’ve been given. ‘My eyes are opened,’ I beg to

differ. You’ve been coded, weighed and delivered. My

blind friend, soon you’ll have to wake up. And

if you can’t, I wish you the best of luck.

Over the years Eyes + Words has turned into a wonderful budding family of over fifteen thousand people across all platforms. It’s surreal and humbling to know that the art of poetry and story is alive and thriving. That being said, I hope that the creation of the Eyes + Words Writers Group serves as a vehicle and launch pad to help and support writers and the aspiring ones to keep manifesting words that many out there are searching for everyday. So go on and contribute, lets elevate together. Everyone is encouraged to share their experiences with anything involving writing.

  4. Smell the roses
    my fine
    written friend,

    your words are elegant
    an imaginative style..
    But your eyes are closed,
    you wouldn’t see
    the truth….

    You would believe we’re
    the only sentient creature
    look at the stars,
    just like the one
    buried under a hotel…
