Life, Wide Shut

Close your eyes.
Really close your eyes.
What do you see?
What thoughts are running through your head?
Did you send that email?
Did you hang the washing?

Close your eyes.
Really close your eyes.
What have you lost?
What have you cut off?
What paths that you chose brought you here?
What paths were chosen for you?

Close your eyes.
Really close your eyes.
Is this what you wanted?
Did you succeed?
Is the you of your youth content?
Is the image projected real?

Close your eyes.
Really close your eyes.
Are you grateful?
For the losses and the wins?
For the cuts and the bruises?

Close your eyes.
Really close your eyes.
How did you make people feel?
Will they remember you?
Are you leaving an impact?
Have you made a change?

Close your eyes.
Really close your eyes.
Who have you done it all for?
And was it for you?
