They say eyes

Are like mirrors to your soul

But do you really want to know

What hides behind them?

They can be clear

Like the light that brakes in them

Or deep like an abyss

Unfathomable and dark

A gate into another self

That if only you walk through

Is nothing like

What it may seem

You can overcome it

The horror that is hiding there

That waits to come free

Jumps out and overtakes you

But what if you can't do it?

Because you're afraid of what you see

Ponder well if you want to know it

The thing in you that is your soul


This is a translation of my German poem, but I had to change some details. Please tell me what you think!
