20/20 Vision Poetry Contest

The Alternative

by Suzanna Ray

20/20 Vision is fine, but there are advantages to being Myopic.
For most folks are kind and willing to bring their Treasures closer
so you can see.This results in finding a new friend from time to time.

Being myopic doesn’t mean that you are blind, its only occasionally that 
you can not find, what you are looking for. 
You may not be able to see beyond your finger tips,
to see the crumbs upon the floor, but that, I would not call a fault.

Being Myopic is advantaged too, by paying attention to the things  
close to you, and not being distracted by things, you can do nothing about.

The world is chaotic enough without worrying about stuff beyond your view.
Then you can focus upon, and feel the things, close to you.

The colors, textures, the angles, the intricate tangles in a
single vine.
But, every now and then, . . .I wish   . . .20/20 Vision
were mine.
