    I have a friend who is considered to be blind.
    He can not see right from wrong,
    or even black, or white.
    This blind friend of mine can’t see unemployment
    or homeless people in food lines under the beautiful sunlight.

    I have a friend who is considered to be blind.
    He can not see green dollar bills or blood splattered walls.
    This blind friend of mine can’t see black on black crime
    or racial slurs written in bathroom stalls.

    So tell me why with all of Gods gifts, do you do the things you do?
    Please tell me why does the blind man have an advantage over you?

    I have a friend who is considered to be deaf.
    She can not hear screams or sirens of the night as she walks under the sparkling stars.
    This deaf friend of mine can’t hear her name used in vain
    or gun shots fired from near by passing cars.

    I have a friend who is considered to be deaf.
    She can not hear political promises about intelligent children living in poverty.
    This deaf friend of mine can’t hear women screaming for support
    while fathers run from their responsibilities.

    So tell me why with all of Gods gifts, do you do the things you do?
    Please tell me why does my deaf friend have an advantage over you?

    I have some friends who are deceased.
    They no longer can feel the effects of alcohol and drug abuse
    while bringing their family name to shame.
    My deceased friends can no longer feel peer pressure,
    warmth of the sun, or wetness caused by rain.

    I have some friends who are deceased.
    They no longer can feel murder and rape
    or breathe in the polluted air while standing outside.
    These deceased friends of mine can no longer feel broken hearted
    or the love that can be given by you and I.

    So tell me with all of the Gifts that God has given you,
    please tell me why would these friends of mine have a secret advantage over you.


    Open your eyes world!!

    Hi Mr. Poet,

    What a way to intro yo self. Such a soul searching piece...causing me to examine my ways. For none of us want to believe we are better off dead unless...hope and faith carries us
    beyond death into the marvelous presence of Jesus Christ. Now that's REAL advantage...period.

    Welcome!....Joyce

    Welcome ~ Welcome ~ Welcome

    :wave: :wave: :wave:

    Welcome ~ Welcome ~ Welcome

    Such a beautiful peace. My mother used to tell me that God doesn't love me anymore than He loves the homeless woman that is living in a box with her children ... while I complain she is probably thanking God.

    Flow and Teach.

    Welcome To The Family!

    :heart:
