innocent eyes

innocent eyes belie
latent mischievous intent
windows of the soul
stained by the instinct to survive


if only we could transcend our own need to survive
recognise that others too, need to survive
perhaps we could all survive together
perhaps we could take each other beyond
the mediocrity of survival

    All good wishes,



I would love to have your thoughts
