I CAN SEE by Maxwell Onyemaechi Opia-Enwemuche

My eyes may be lost forever
but my heart is open to see my dreams
though they deride my bad sight like the yellow fever
I’ll arise and pursue with vigour, my dreams

My heart sing a song waiting for the world to hear
my dreams must walk upon the tables of this world
my voice of gratitude, the world must hear
though blind, I’ll impact my world

I can see through my mind
the wonders of nature reigns in me
for greatness, I desire to find
and the beauty of excellence rests within me

I know I’m well able
I maybe disable to the world, but I’m well able
I may not see through my naked eyes,
but my dreams through my heart will rent the skies.

I declare for the world to hear me now and forever
and I know in my disability, my heart can see
I may be your own brother
Believe in my ability though disable because I can see.
