The mirror cracked my eye;  If looking glasses are dark,  then why should I look?

Give me the roses back,  and I will seek truth elsewhere;  And why should I acquire knowledge that hurts?

Scripture and philosophy blurred my vision,  and I weary in sifting;  Then why should I stare?

I long for simplicity,  and ache for blissful ignorance,  or peaceful acceptance.

My image has changed,  or is it my perception?  Is it the mirror or my eye?
