Blind Man



I know you wish you had your sight
A blind man’s life’s not easy
Your eyes deceive and say there’s a light
You mind tells you’re crazy

 

Your hands grope frantically to find
Some truth ‘mid the confusion
When you reach out and no one’s there
You curse at life’s illusion



There is beauty in the night
There is strength in unseen sight
A blind man’s eyes are quick to see
The hidden thoughts and subtleties

 

He searches out the human mind
And with perceptiveness is kind
To those who need a soul that feels
And know what a shy heart conceals



Self-pity is a hidden stone 
That dulls your other senses
It lures into deep despair
It hides you behind fences



Remember others need your love
Give it flowin’ like a river
When the feeling dies then like your eyes
Your heart will wilt and wither



There is beauty in the night
There is strength in unseen sight
A blind man’s eyes are quick to see
The hidden thoughts and subtleties

 

He searches out the human mind
And with perceptiveness is kind
To those who need a soul that feels
And know what a shy heart conceals

    A brilliant read. I actually work in a college assistant teaching vunberable adults with learning disabilities, this is inspiring.

    Thanks for reading Maxine and your evaluation. The poem is actually a song written just for that purpose: to help disabled people understand they have many ways they can contribute to the lives of others and help them. That they a purpose in life greater then many of us because they can help and inspire in spite of their individual disabilities. Here's the song, I didn't post it because it was made a long time ago and it would be difficult for me to redo it now.

    One of our good friends has a loss of sight, one of the most positive ladies that I have ever known.
