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 passed me because I am different…..
Tomorrow ….you too….
could be walking
in my shoes……..
upon my

    This can certainly stand on its own merits but it’s powerfully effective with the image. Such an important lesson for all of us. Without preconceptions, we do need to think about what it might be like to walk in someone else’s shoes! Well done Angel – very thought provoking work!

  • Thank you for this lovely feedback and the effort you put into everyones feedback…its is important to me as a new writer …I am loving using my gift to get some thought provoking messages across and the art work showcases a shop front to welcome the readers interest;))
