A Confession of The Eyes

Eyes…what are they? What are they for? Why are they here…. We only know that eyes serve a purpose such as allowing us to see things in life. Even right now. I am using my eyes to type this blog post. And you are using yours to read this blog post. So? So they are important. But, most of us always overuse it. I, myself, have been using my eyes non-stop for a just one whole day, and my eyes just confessed with me.

They said that they are hurt because I use them too much. They begged and pleaded for me to go to sleep, take a nap, or even just close it, so that they might have a break—oops. Sorry. I wanted to too since I’m scared that my eyesight is going to be worse. But what can I do? I have school. I have homework to do. If I don’t do it using my eyes, what am I going to use? Who is going to finish my homework for me. No one. Yeah, that’s right. Nobody. Everyone have their own things to do, to finish. A bunch of them stacked like a mountain high up into the sky.

What now? The eyes argued, “But we NEED to rest! If you don’t let us regain back our energy, we won’t be able to help you in the long run. Your choice. We are here to help you, but if you’re going to abuse us like that, then we’re out.” I’m scared…What they said are imprinted in my mind. and brain. “What should I do now?” I thought to myself. “How should I fix this problem? I can’t just stop everything and just leave it there, waiting and hoping for them to get up and do it all by themselves for me. Could I?”

After days after days, nights after nights, I came up with a solution. I am going to sleep. I will do the other things later. One after another. But first, I need to let them rest. Because they are important. Without them, it would be even harder. Fine, I’ll do it. I know it’s not going to be easy since—well, anyways, let’s just forget about it for now. Things seem so easy…yet so far to reach. Too high. Too low. But no matter what, if I have the mind and the will backing me up then I will be able to make it come true. Because the only way out is in.

    Ooooo, nice ending quote, very nice. Although I would have chosen a better picture at the end. Doesn’t really feel like it sticks to me.

      Thank you Brandon for the suggestions. I’ll look at it again and try to see what I can do to make it better. 🙂
