Real world is invisible

without the Inner Eye.

It’s a lesson, I had learned.

I had to go through crises

till the Eye was opened.

Some are born with it,

some grow it with time,

and some die blind;

never missing them in life.

I would rather embrace

a colorless, prosaic world

that the Inner Eye will show

than live in a mythic world of rainbow .

If you have it

Not only does this world

become a crystal

but also those who inhabit it.

And it’s the only way

to be spared from

that invisible big bad wolf.
