I look into the eyes that raised me and I learn something new
Those familiar eyes are just as confused and gentle as me and you.
Those same eyes that seemed so mean-spirited when you were young
Are still developing after all these years, the growing isn’t done.
Those eyes still light up when they watch their favorite childhood show
Those eyes celebrated with you through every high and bared the brunt of every low
Those eyes aren’t the thick metal shield they sometimes pretend to be
Those eyes that raised you are just as human as you and me.
