I thought...

I decided to be positive
just to give it a whirl
pretty dress, nice shoes
hair done, makeup on
all the accessories

I saw.....

People smiling without showing teeth
words coming out without meaning
ears open but not listening 
interested not really caring

I thought...

There were others in clothes made of tatters
teeth the color not pretty
holes in shoes too small
hair a mess, makeup gone

I  saw...

People not smiling, not even a grin
mouths closed with no words to tell
others being ignored because of their chagrin
passer buyers not even a glance

I thought...

What has happened?
Don’t we care?
Is Armani the most important thing that we wear?
Aren't we all equal in the things we posses?

I swear.

    For too long now..... have people forgotten....that, to think, is only half the problem. You must also make note, and and bring to light, for the others, the things you have seen, heard, and learned in this won-der-ful life. You see? Look now, what you have won. Your thoughts... have taught me what no else has done, or could do, for there... is... only... one - such as you, and It's my honor.... to read your truth. Cheers! tyvm :))
