With sepia eyes

With sepia eyes

In walks among others

I’ve witnessed with sepia eyes

hope and despair

held broken ones who had nothing

not a single friend who cared.

Some mornings were beautiful

some were ugly with hate

I escaped within my heart

found my crayons to color

a different fate.

Each step led to another

among others just like me

flesh and bones

searching for peace to atone

a life that sometimes goes astray.

With sepia eyes and determination to be

a light to those in darkness

nature and beauty rekindled my spirit

while scribbling to be free

of shackles from years of living blindly.

Today, break out your crayons

see with fresh colors

show others it’s possible to

love and uncover


burn baby burn
