Original text and translations
When we cannot see it right.
When the best that is, is beyond our sight,
We defy our blindness by crawling toward the light.
We feel the warmth of something beyond our vision,
And trust the journey, made with halt and indecision,
Will lead to a door where blindness falls away.
Where darkness melts before the inner ray of what is felt,
And what is sensed is seen.
