There are times that sight can be a detriment to reason.

In looking out from within,
I sustain what lies herein.
Holding to my rightful dream,
and attacks on my self esteem.

My future trembles of past
emotions which are broadcast
by societal jaundiced view
and narrow minded taboo.

Here am I, locked in shroud,
prisoner in the mental cloud,
of bigotry, blind to worth,
denounced, damned, because of birth.

By appearance, therefore am?
No, sight cannot judge and damn.
Books give no indication
of inward inspiration,
til open cover reveals
what thwarted vision conceals.

My image corrupts your view,
by reflecting back at you,
jaded belief in mankind,
exposing your tepid mind.

Man becomes invisible,
distantly divisible,
by using appearance for value,
and what you abhor.

We loosened the fettered chain
of your ignorant, profane
belief, black can't equal white.
We claimed our God given right.

From Colored, Negro, Blackman,
to African American.
We sought to remove black skin
from the rot your mind sits in.

When a man's eyesight has died,
a blessed heart opens wide,
removing the angry slate
of a blinding visions hate.

In blindness, observe a man,
as only the sightless can.

We defied a tradition
of supremacy position
men have held, to humiliate
and forever subjugate
women.


and on and on and on

Whatever your own bigoted position
Close your eyes and see

I don't know how I missed this one in October. I have taken a deep breath and relaxed. Every year the women have been invited to the reception after the parade, but not this year. We are only fit to serve at the restaurant.(see: I Love A Parade) You have put my mind in a better frame with these eloquent words. It's too late for the parade but I will serve the veterans tomorrow.

(Clapping) This is exceptional, Rusty, and I would have to say my favorite from you with your more serious work. This is really profound and I so agree. Your last line says it all, "Close your eyes and see." Exceptional.
Love,
CJ

Very true indeed, it is hard to judge one by their outward appearance, and as Victor said it is the secret where one should be judged, the secret holds the key to the truth. One can portray a picture of whatever they desire the eye to behold. We live in a society today where too many pass judgement on others that without getting to know that person, I have been told that people thought I was a stuffy person because I often sit quietly when in a crowd such as a meeting at work, but by far I am not stuffy just reserved until the right and appropriate time. I have one of the biggest mouths when it comes to having a good time and laughing freely. The outward appearance is in the eye of the beholder, but the inward person only the good Lord and self know this and it is what truly counts.
Blessings, and great write

There is still a tendency that one judges by what one sees, which is wrong of course. I have written today that a person reveals only one eight of what's inside him, the rest is secret and it is on that secret that one should judge. But to do so one has to get to know that person very intimately. Victor

Ah ha, you are, as suspected, a canard. Earlier postings of great humor have gathered the followers who can now appreciate your real talent; social commentary of unique slants in direct paths taken.

This is one of the best revelations on prejudice ever written for human contemplation.. Stated in plain talk, it is homey, and deeply steeped in wisdom and conviction. My highest compliment is yours, good friend and fellow writer.

A new book on the way describing a modern-day event prophesied over 2000 years ago. It begins with the three denials by Peter that he knew Jesus. Hopefully, I will have it complete..
