He was hearing the most beautiful melodies

Even though he was deaf

She was seeing the most beautiful colors

Even though she was blind

He had traveled all over the world

Even though he was in a wheel-chair


Never under-estimate the power of the mind

Never belittle the power of the imagination

Never put a person into a box

Based on what you see

But open your mind to endless possibilities

Created by the power that is humanity

            So true!! I wish others would open their minds to the wonders of life.

            • FredPeyer

              Thank you Goldfinch! I do think that writers in general go through life with wide open eyes and minds. How else could one find things to write about?

              Good write Fred. I'm open to the possibilities of sherry too! lol.

              • FredPeyer

                Thanks orchi! But don't forget, this is a mind exercise and you are only allowed to THINK about sherry!

                The message in this powerfully written verse is vital to keep close in mind Fred - - - - - what abilities humanity can demonstrate when found in situations you describe. A worthy tribute with much to re-read so into my faves. with this gem of a write.

                        Thank you Christina! It is ALL mind!!!!! Everything ever created had to be thought of first! The good and the bad.

                      • Louis Gibbs

                        Beethoven, Helen Keller, Steven Hawking ... all come to mind when reading this fine poem, Fred. Good words well spoken!

                        • FredPeyer

                          Thank you Louis! I actually was thinking of Steven Hawking, and then the poem kind of wrote itself.
