Sight

Why is it
That we only judge
What we see
As all that we know?
The sight of things
Can be deceptive
And incorrect
At first glance
Yet we trust our eyes
And not our gut
Or our heart
For any decision
An ugly plate of food
Could be the tastiest
A hideous flower
Could carry the sweetest scent
And an ugly man
Could be the most kind
But no one
Would allow the chance
To discover such things
Because we are pleased
Not by lasting results
But by immediate
And incomplete gratification
