On Being Blind

6 Jun

By Tali Sarnetzky

Like vampires, I mirrors hate,

For I have no use for those,

And the beauty of the rose

Must prick, almost like fate.

And windows sense have never made,

As if installed to tease

Those who cannot enjoy with ease

The light and must know the shade.

Some advances of mankind,

Cars to drive and wars to win,

Which I cannot even begin

To understand, for I am in a bind.

Do not pity the lack of the perception!

Instead, observe a fresh conception.

Tali Sarnetzky became totally blind at age 3 and has come to love and appreciate this technical challenge. She is working on becoming a lecturer of English Literature, writing her first screenplay and spreading her uncompromising optimism.
