G.R. Gaus (April 11 1950 / St. Louis)
To Walk That Proverbial Mile
Have you ever thought and wondered,
Forgetting everything you are,
What it’s like to be someone else?
Like glancing in; from afar.
Another image in the mirror,
New ideas to understand,
Conceptions; another point of view,
Consider, what’s been planned.
A brand new life to look within,
It certainly must be strange,
To see; from the inside out,
Somehow sensing in the change.
Everyone must have differences,
Every mind, grows along the way,
Some thinking as an individual,
Although some, go far astray.
Off course it’s just a thought,
But it may help us come to see,
Walk a mile in someone’s shoes,
Perhaps, may learn, to agree.
