Christopher Aaron

Re-demption

He deemed his life unimportant
He considered he was lost, forgotten
But when he shared his worthless feelings
With a good friend, one who knew him 
And his actions well, 
The friend helped him see
The influence he had had on others
And the good example he had been
The man was blind but his friend helped him see.
Sometimes we all are blind, but our eyes can be opened
By another. The man who deemed his life unimportant
Was told by his friend to re-flect and re-view his feelings
Or to re-deem and consider them again
And when he re-deemed his life and actions
It redeemed his life...a redemption almost as sweet
As the final redemption he hopes for
The one enabled by the Man above.

    Good friends always help us to see ourselves. Good write and so true Christopher.

    True- and in this case it wasn’t just the friend recognizing the good qualities but like you said, helping his friend become aware of their positive effect on others
