Unknown fears I hold inside;
behind my eyes the truth lies.
In a high I shed tears in silence,
waiting for a ray of hope
to awaken me from this reverie.
Deaf ears hear my woeful cries
and console with caresses of kindness,
as those who walk the Earth continue
to forsake my very existence. Fear, I fear, this solitude I fear; for misery is my only companion . . . Inspiration: #Unknown#Fears
Have you ever noticed the eyes of people who are lost? Whether they be requesting physical or emotional direction there is an intensity in their gaze that is hungry for knowledge. They wait in anticipation on your every word contemplating over the insightful information that may lead them to their destination. The pitch black route towards their destination scares them; somewhere along this rigid path they make a wrong turn and no longer know which direction to go. You happen to intersect them on this lonely road and their eyes light up with hope.
The lost eyes look at you as if you are the only person in the world that will understand them. The stranger maintains an eye lock with you searching for an answer in your eyes; he believes you are going to deliver a message that will lead him to salvation. You have never crossed paths with this stranger, but you feel this immediate bond with him. Each time you look into his perplexed eyes you feel a certain familiarity that you can not identify. His lost eyes are captivating and you have no control over yourself; each time you try to walk away from this stranger fate seems to pull you by the arm and redirect you back to him.
As you guide this individual to his destination you learn more about the stranger and even more about yourself. You never thought you had the inner strength to support and encourage an individual to acquire a destination in their life. You did not know that it would feel so rewarding to watch someone taking steps closer and closer to their goal. One day your journey with this stranger ends, he has finally arrived at his destination. There he stands beaming with fulfillment and pouring gratitude through his once lost eyes. You feel a sense of pride and joy; these emotions escape your eyes and fall to the ground. Then you realize why the lost eyes were so appealing and why you were initially drawn to this stranger. Those lost eyes contained a reflection of you. Your soul was drawn to aid this stranger because you saw your own lost eyes in his. The journey towards the strangers destination was never just for him. You were never helping a stranger; you were helping yourself . . .
Everyone has experienced the feeling of being lost in life. Sadly, not many people are found or guided and their journey never seems to end. When you see someone with lost eyes be the bridge that will lead them to their destination.
“If you need a helping hand, along the way and I’m the one, I’ll be your soldier, I’ll fight all your best Till freedom come, and if you need some shelter Cause, Coming storm I’ll be your cover keep ya, Safe and warm I’ll be close by, Any time, Night or day I’ll be that bridge That take you over the mountain I’ll lift you up, and take you over the top”
