Book Excerpt:

I think that I have journeyed down this path before
that I saw the man ahead of me, beside me and behind me
and I know they didn’t speak and find his heart, but I did
and I loved it as God blessed it and me for the togetherness
and thank God I am colorblind

or I’d have missed him and who he is
and so will they and their loss will be so great
for kindness he is and gentleness he is and love he is
and I am wanting us and him and I will not walk away from him
but I will walk away from them who are blinded
