Each year, I went in for my annual eye exam
and with each visit, old faithful,
the all-important eye chart was present,
the doctor asked me to remove my glasses
and read the smallest letters I could make
out on the chart, and me, knowing I could
not even make out the capital E,
the largest letter displayed at the top.
Why he still asked after reading my thick
medical chart, I did not understand?
Did he think I would develop some super
hero vision, allowing me to see through walls?
Yes, I am Mr. Magoo without my glasses,
a good reason why I wear them.
My eye sight, something not taken for granted,
always fearing I could go blind one day,
though sometimes, a blurred view of the world
was helpful from me going insane.
