Unfocused by Donna J. Sanders


My sight may continue

to become distorted

and shriveled as I age

but I am learning to see

how easy people give in

to the demands of the world

following the herds of false shepherds

who stand higher on pedestals

that are filled with foundations

of unfortunate souls

I shall not be cloned like these sheep

for I have always been the one

coated with an ebony wool

I have escaped that pasture

to roam free
