Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter

Second Sight

What was left behind
in Shawns eyes
became a gift,
some better quality
of life than before,
some absolute ability
for one, or two
What was left behind
becomes the gift through
modern miracle, science
and donorship, and wisdom
via the bigger scene,
the larger scope
of things to come.
All this from such a terrible
sacrifice no parent
should ever have to make.
What was left behind of
Shawn became second sight.
