The Blind Man's Image

Born in a room of mirrors,
we are given a name,
an infinite image.

Some never see themselves
as reflection but merely
blocking light.

Darkness, the part of thought
that thrives in blindness
has no need for faith

or blessings

but any creature capable
of fear is surely worthy
of redemption.

It makes little difference
to the captive core inside
as it lives by extension.

No heads! Held captive, yet out there as if free. The courage this takes!
