Lighter-Colored Eyes

For some reason, Pecola from The Bluest Eye by Tony Morison is haunting me these days. She was a black child who wanted to exchange her eyes for blue ones – metaphorically, a desire to change her identity. I always wanted to have “lighter-colored” eyes. Do I want a “lighter” identity? Is it weighing down upon me? I think it is! I need to let go of the so many worries and thoughts that burden my mind and heart. I need to be less obsessed with plans, crazier, and more accepting of people as they are without trying to change anything in them.

I would give my heart away… for a fresh one.



  1. I only agree about “not trying to change them” as for the rest, hmmm keep them lamma nshoof eh elly haye7sal :P
