Working as a school crossing guard I had a
Student ask me ; why of things of beauty do you write
When all people want to do is argue, fuss and fight !
People are not going to change , when everything
Around them stays the same !
People see others struggling and they don’t care
What they have they are not willing to share.
When all someone may need – is a little hope on which to feed.
A piece of bread , a smile , a hello is something that they don’t know.
Not everyone is the same that can receive success , wealth and fame !
You don’t know what the poor go through until it happens to you !
All this that was said I know this to be true – there is beauty and ugliness too.
Yet after each world known disaster comes a calm and peace soon after
People come together when ugliness raises it s head and stomp
On it until it’s dead.
This is the beauties of which I write – when GOD touches us
And gives us sight.
