Blind


Words. Phrases, still buzzing between my ears…

a life of impact, don’t settle for the ordinary, be the change you want to see.

 

How can I make a difference I think to myself, as I walk out the church door…

past someone I know is hurting.

How can I make a difference I think to myself… as I hear the sounds of hopelessness.

How can I make a difference?… as I pass a rubbish bin, knocked over, contents spilling.

How can I make a difference?…  as I hear someone bullied.

How can I make a difference ?…  as I walk past a hungry man begging from the curb.

How can I make a difference?… I pass some youths tormenting a dog.

How can I make a difference?…    I walk past a homeless person sleeping on the park bench.

How can I make a difference?…  one of my neighbours is locked out side.

How can I make a difference I think to myself, as I trudge up the apartment stairs…

the echoes of my footsteps in unison with the sounds of domestic violence.

 

How can I make a difference?

It’s the last thought I think as I roll over & drift off to sleep.
