I wrote this one on my way to AP Government. I'm quite proud of the imagery in this one as well.

Gouge out the wooden eyes
    that view upon the soul
Devour and deny the most
    Outstanding of accomplishments
Taste the fire of death and life
    combined into a single frozen snowflake
Put away the pain of sight
    and forget thy vision plain
Look upon the beauty that lies
    far abouve the mortal sand
Become the beauty spied
    and listen to the comfort found within.
