    The Blind Man

    Don’t feel sorry for me

    I was born into this world without site

    I’ve painted a vivid picture in mind that shows

    What my world looks like

    I see a world with equality and unity

    I world with know bloodshed in are community

    I didn’t see the plane crashing into the twin towers

    Or the president sending troops to war to capture that cowards

    I never seen the disparity in that mans eyes

    When held up that sign will work for food

    Or that child’s face when she asked you to play with her

    And you said you where not in the mood

    I never seen the news when they showed the war that’s going on in Liberia

    Brotha’s in sista’s are fighting that same war here in America

    I’ve never seen lives being taken over music

    Or what a person with Aids has to go through

    So don’t feel sorry for me because I’m blind

    My world is beautiful

    I feel sorry for you

    If we all could see the world thru the eyes of Stevie Wonder or Ray Charles...This poem was definitely hot.
