**********************Why**************************1979


why? is man or woman chosen to be
or do we create our own destiny?
if man sits idley by
and does not even get up to try.
will he be the chosen one
or will he be the earths scum.

why? is the question that we must ask
or will we be put to a task.
if a person is born blind. why?
are they and not i?

we must all be put to a test
to try to create or do our best.
and if we do not try.
the question will always come up- why?

why? should be the key
for it may hold our destiny.
now you may understand what i am saying
and 'why? ' so many people are praying

and asking the LORD up above
'why? ' can't we understand love.

    I know we are here to be tested by the Lord above. I am legally blind. I can read but have to enlarge the font to see the words. I am glad that I can be in both worlds, totally blind and part blind, so that I can know what I face for the future. I enjoy all your poems. :) (Report) Reply

    It's always been a question in my mind as to why someone wouldn't want to do the best that they can. Real pride has fallen to the way side and false Pride has stepped in. Great creating (Report) Reply
