Tired Eyes, Tired Hands

Tired eyes can only see black.
Tired eyes can only look back.
Tired eyes cannot see
The sudden, surprised,
Attack.

Tired hands can only be used for Self-defense.
Tired hands, when bruised, remain still, and
Without sense.

There is the Law,
It must be followed
In this, His Land.

For this The Paw
Took a nail and hollowed
Out
His
Own
Hands.

{Light and Shade
Is what we are made of.
Light, and Shade, and Love.}
