Perspective Poems

Guest Author - Danielle Hollister


PERSPECTIVE

Pray don't find fault with the man who limps
Or stumbles along the road

Unless you have worn the shoes that hurt
Or struggled beneath his load

There may be tacks in his shoes that hurt,
Though hidden away from view

Or the burden he bears, placed on your back,
Might cause you to stumble, too.

Don't sneer at the man who's down today
Unless you have felt the blow

That caused his fall, or felt the same
That only the fallen know.

You may be strong, but still the blows
That were his, if dealt to you

In the self same way at the self same time,
Might cause you to stagger, too.

Don't be too harsh with the man who sins
Or pelt him with words or stones,

Unless you are sure, yea, doubly sure,
That you have no sins of your own.

For you know perhaps, if the tempters voice
Should whisper as soft to you

As it did to him when he went astray,
'Twould cause you to falter, too.

~~ Author Unknown ~~


IF THE WORLD WAS BLIND

If the world was blind,
maybe then we'd see
the true side of beauty,
deep within you and me.

No one could judge us
by our outer looks,
like the fancy covers
on expensive books.

We'd see with our hearts,
and not just our eyes,
and what we'd discover
might be a surprise.

There would be no need
to try to impress,
with the way we look,
or the way that we dress.

The only thing that would matter
is the way we would feel,
not phoney or cheap,
but truthful and real.
