There, on the side of the street, do you see
The woman with the haggard hair, do you stare
At the man with the toothless grin, do you care
If there is an infant, a child, an old man
Without anything more to eat, to wear
What do you think, in your car, going past
On your way to somewhere, anywhere, but there
What if you took the time to look, in their eyes
At their faces, would you see beyond the grime
And see someone, perhaps, you can't place, to
See your sister, your mother, your brother,
a bit of you

This poem is thought-provoking, a reminder.

When we think, we should not forget to act. This kind of subject implies conscious action.

Thank you,

I wanted to thank you for the lovely comment Sharon on "A Poem", and also say that this piece of yours here is so very true and touching. Reminds me a bit of the short story I wrote "The Bum". Have you ever read, I believe it is called, Down and Out in Paris and London by George Orwell? That's probably the most telling read I have ever read speaking of there side of the story...
Here you've captured what he took a book to write, in a nutshell
Love and light to you

"Faces" strikes social responsibility and humanity through its wise lines.

In admiration,

They say that the eyes are the window of the soul. Eyes never change but we and the rest of our bodies do. The eye is like an enduring sentinal patiently overseeing all these changes. There is of course the spiritual eye that looks deeper into the soul - this is the focus that ought to make us more alert to our true condition.

Walk a mile in my shoes comes to mind. Excellent poem of caring.

This is heart wrenching, Sharon, and you've asked some very good questions -- you have a tender and overflowing heart, my friend. I guess our lives have all gotten so complicated and rushed. We should take the time to look and really 'see' those around us who are not as fortunate. Thank you for pointing this out. Well done.
