Hi All! Yeah, I am sort of new here so I thought I’d stop by and introduce myself. I also wanted to include a poem that has sort of had a lot of meaning for me for the longest time… and if this is the first time that you’ve seen it, maybe it will mean something for you too.
Blind or Sighted?: A VIP
Got siblings?: Yes- 1st Family, 3 brothers and 4 sisters, 2nd Family- 1 brother and 2 sisters.
Hobbies?: Reading, writing, listening to music, audio books/ magazines, watching movies, hanging out with friends and family.
Something Cool About You: The reason why I think I’m a VIP is because my mom sort of got struck by lightning when she was pregnant for me… not cool but I guess sort of unusual.
Widen My Vision
God open my eyes so I may see
And feel your presence close to me…
Give me strength for my stumbling feet
As I battle the crowd on life’s busy street,
And widen the vision of my unseeing eyes
So in passing faces I’ll recognize
Not just a stranger, unloved and unknown,
But a friend with a heart that is much like my own…
Give me perception to make me aware
That scattered profusely on life’s thoroughfare
Are the best gifts of God that we daily pass by
As we look at the world with an Unseeing Eye
