All that Glitters not gold by 

When we walk past strangers we do not know of their happiness or sadness….we do not know of their life’s or inflictions
we do not know of their needs
This was taken of a street entertainer in France and inspired me to do this poem…he needed the money that people were giving him for whatever reason, but who was he underneath the gold who are we under neath our guises…..
If this makes you the reader think of the less fortunate It has served its purpose…

All that glitters is not gold……..

I have no sight but vision is mine…..
I have no hearing but I sense and understand…..
I may be dumb but my heart knows when to trust……
I may be cripple but In my mind I walk with god……
I cannot paint but my imagination is like an artists palette…….
I may be diseased but my soul is not contaminated……..
I am starving yet my spirit could be filled with friendship….
I am drowning but your smile could save me….
I am homeless yet I live in Gods house….
Do not walk past me because I am different…..
Tomorrow ….you too….
could be walking
in my shoes……..
upon my
