My Eyes Have Seen

My eyes have seen joy in a handful of change when that change adds up to a loaf of bread.

My eyes have seen five baby boys born into this world in a peaceful and gentle way, and my eyes have seen those boys grow into peaceful, gentle young men.

My eyes have seen hatred, blame, hurt, and despair directed at the soul behind them.

My eyes have seen anonymous gifts of money slipped into mail boxes or strangers' hands.

My eyes have seen many dreams come true.

My eyes have seen unconditional love.

My eyes have seen theft, vandalism, violence, fraud, and fire. Drugs, alcohol, sex, pornography and death.

My eyes have seen many faiths.

My eyes have seen a humble dinner feed more people than it logically could have.

My eyes have seen life in a hospital with a 10 year old.

My eyes have seen miracles.

The End
