Would you trade your eyes?

Would you trade your eyes
not for crystal blue or emerald green,
not for those with perfect acuity?

Would you trade your eyes
for those that see beneath
physical beauty and external adornment
or marital or career success,
or conversely see beneath
sin and brokenness?

Would you trade your eyes
for those that see
the beauty and goodness in another’s soul,
God’s image imprinted upon each person?

Would you trade your eyes for them?

What I if told you
they are already yours?
You have only to open them.
