Beyond The Color Of Your Eyes

Explorations of that which lies beyond the color of your eyes and thoughts in your mind

By Libby CannonPublished 6 months ago 2 min read

Look in the mirror

But look beyond what seems to appear

Why can't you see the thoughts that hide in your brain

That are waiting to be heard

As loud as your thoughts of pain?

There are statements sitting

In the crevices

Waiting for you to uncover their purpose

There's a whole world within that one single mind

But you can't see beyond the color of your eyes

To see the galaxy shining beneath

Waiting to be known and waiting to be seen

Can you feel what lies behind your heart?

There's a force that's been sitting there from the very start

From the second you were born to the minute your body will die

The universe lives and faces death

Within every single breath of life

That you send out into this planet earth to be picked up by the trees

Where they turn it into magic

That continues to feed you and me

It's a scientific fact

It's called the Circle of Life

Nature is the reason our bodies haven't died

But what's keeping our souls alive?

Is it the thoughts of expansion

Sitting in your mind?

Is it the galaxies hiding behind your eyes?

Is it the entire universe

That's made a home in your heart?

Is it the feeling of unity

That's missing when two lovers are apart?

Is it in the feeling of love?

Is it hidden in the world of emotions?

Is it being carried in the power of the currents

As a gift from ocean to ocean?

Can you hear it in the wind through the trees?

In the connection between the flowers and the bees?

Can you see it in the cycle of the death and rebirth

Of the autumn to spring to summer leaves?

Or can you see it when you look in the mirror?

Can you feel that soul inside you?

Can you see beyond the limitations of the body

And feel that force within you?

Do you understand who you are?

And who you're meant to be?

Do you understand that a death on this earth is simply the death of a body?

Where does your soul go?

Did you know that you have a spirit?

And did you know that you'll be reunited with the other souls in existence?

Did you know that there's a god?

Beyond what you saw in church?

Did you know that that god is you?

That he lived in your soul first?

Can you see this when you look in the mirror?

Can you see that force and that light?

Can you feel the colors of all that exists?

Or can you only see the color of your eyes?
