    As I walk along with the rush
    around me
    i realize today…
    there are those with no destination in mind
    rather
    enjoying an afternoon in the sun
    entertained by the whistling of the wind
    the breeze in the trees
    the melodic tunes of nearby waterfalls…
    it is within this beat
    i bear witness to the virginity of life

    If im still
    i see
    the beauty
    of what lies beneath…

    Freedom
    of the homeless

    GOD…
    in the eyes
    of the so-called handicapped.

    The embrace of two
    who appear to have nothing
    but actually have it all…

    I am envious of this simplicity

    For I know GOD is near….

    "I did not come to heal those who are not sick..."

    those who find GOD find HIM in the simple things of life. Loving like a child allows for us to see the love of GOD when we have nothing else to offer...

    i can see you washing HIS feet and drying them with your hair...

    You have reached the true level of GOD...you have been a blessing to the room, and to me...
