    I Saw Jesus Today…
    He smelled of month old urine
    sat on a corner, crying from a beleaguered soul.
    He asked of me for 50 cents to get a meal
    and I looked ahead and walked by.
    He simply kept his seat.

    I Saw Jesus Today…
    Strolling the strip in pink hot pants and red stilettos
    seeking men for a paid, pimp thrill
    not really wanting to be where she was
    but seeing no way out as I purchased her.

    I Saw Jesus Today…
    Shouting to the tops of his voice
    trying to bring sinners and wayward saints home
    with an unintelligible messages
    but a 5 x 9 sign clearing warning men of hell
    and I kept my pace past Him.

    I saw Him again…
    Stumbling in a stupor, sad look upon His face
    trying to drown his past in this bottled darkness
    while His future slipped away in that bottle
    from the reality that He had done great wrongs and lost hope
    and only drunkenness could bring his stormy soul calm
    I just looked at Him.

    He showed up again…
    in the milk carton enamored faces
    of young missing babies
    and I sat to a breakfast of champions
    and didn’t whisper a word of prayer.
    I filled my gut in spite of Him.

    I Saw Jesus Today…
    as he strolled the highways
    stripped in black and white
    and bound in a life of crime
    behind bars doing time
    and I never took a minute to visit Him.

    I Saw Jesus Today…
    as I stood with hosts of heaven
    expecting my golden crown
    as I bowed down
    but he never saw me
    for I failed to really see Him.

    This was so awesome and beautiful, at times I had to pause from reading. Sometimes we have to rethink the way we look and feel about others, because we are not without sin ourselves, and we do not know what they have been through in life. Can't say enough about this piece.
