Cornea: (n) the transparent anterior part of the eye covering the iris and the pupil
“All those in favor…”
“The eyes have it.”
“The eyes are the windows to the soul.”
“The light of the body is the eye.”
“The eyes never lie.”
If all of this is true, aside from correcting my eyesight through glasses or surgery, what can I do to convey to others through my cornea, sincerity?
Nothing. That’s the beauty of the eyes:
- They cannot be “enlisted” in a plan for deception.
- They cannot be instructed in devious forms of flitting.
Generally speaking, they give away the intention of the heart long before the lips have a chance to spit out a deceitful explanation.
Yes, the tongue speaks deception; the ears are often deaf.
But the eyes see it all and tell it all.
Perhaps that’s why we don’t like to make eye contact with one another. We know our brothers and sisters on Earth “read” us through those portals.
Yes, it is safer to be downcast or to put on the darkest pair of sunglasses you can find, and keep the world guessing.
Because once you unmask those beautiful peepers, they begin to speak volumes on the contents within.
I don’t know much about the actual cornea, but I do know that it is where we are guaranteed to speak the truth, although all of our other members may be trying to launch a sinful plan.
