None So Blind

 

there are some

reading sin

see beauty

 

no objection

discerned

 

no rejection

known

 

utmost defiance

no more than

courage

 

there are none so blind

as those who will not see

 

After writing "Victus," reading some comments on

Henley’s “Invictus” and seeing so many see no more

than a beautiful poem.

 

Which, when you look at it, isn’t so beautiful after all.
