Blind

By Mariel Ruiz, Age 12, New York

 

Sometimes my eyes don’t see and my hands don’t feel.
Sometimes my ears don’t hear, and my mouth don’t taste or talk.
My nose doesn’t smell.
It is true sometimes I don’t see but I can feel.
Maybe you think I do not know but I do.
I am aware even though I don’t show.
Careful what you say because my ears can hear.
Careful what you give ’cause my mouth can taste.
Careful what you build because my hands can feel.
Careful what you throw because my nose can smell.
But do what you do because at the end my heart is blind even though my eyes can see.
