Winning Poem

A world of darkness.

A world so blurry.

A grandparent who longs to see the face

of a grandchild.

An individual with headaches.

A child who hates school.

A letter left unread.

An undiagnosed disease.

A world now bright and colorful.

A world that is crisp.

A grandchild’s clear smile.

An individual whose head no longer

hurts.

A child who now loves to read.

A person’s day enriched by a note from a

friend.

A disease caught in time to treat.

A life more rich and beautiful.

Optometrists enable people to live life

the the fullest. That is who I want to be.
