Essay On Blindness
Author: Karla Bardanza


Blindness is still what hinders people from looking afar.
They canít see beauty, oceans and stars, they lack compassion
For themselves and even for the others.They cling to stupid
Beliefs and old dogmas as if truth belonged only to them.

Blindness is an infectious disease that spreads so fast
And can last for such a long time...The lesions are permanent,
Indecent, illogical and even chronological...History has many
Examples of this malady: discriminations of all sorts, wars as a
Stupid sport, homicides in the name of God, dictatorships,
Silly revolutions leading nowhere, suicides, stupid fears.

Blindness is what frightens me every single day, it is a word
I am always afraid to say.When we see, we witness...I wonder
If i can survive my own blindness caused so many times by my
Stupid madness and fear...I wonder how many of us are blind
Even to wipe our own tears.
