An old poem

This is a poem I turned into movie many years ago. The words are below. There is a rumour that it may be remade soon into a blockbuster movie.

I’m almost blind but I see more than you ever do

For you wear blinkers all the time staring straight ahead

You never see the beauty in plain sight

The amazing things in front of you.

 

Never looking around

Never look up nor down

never see the sights outside your head

 

The details of the city etched so fine

the shapes the buildings make against the sky

the colours contrasting bright and dull

the past present and future live side by side

 

Never looking around

Never look up nor down

never see the sights outside your head

 

Alleys turn to canyons in front of me

Flowers and graffiti create a bright picture side by side

Statues turn and stare down at you

Glass fronts make one buildings two.

 

Never looking around

Never look up nor down

never see the sights outside your head

 

None of this you will see

though your eyes work well but your mind never sees
