In My Eyes - Poem by Bryson Garrett

In my eyes I see people dying day by day.
In my eyes I see people fighting the president's war.
In my eyes I see young ladies becoming pregnant by older men.
In my eyes I see the white man judging the black man.
In my eyes I see preachers speaking God's name, but not living their lives with the holy spirit.
In my eyes I still see people on drugs day by day.
In my eyes I still see police harassing people.
In my eyes I still see people that are fortunate to have good things in their lives, but still complain.
In my eyes I see young teens dropping out of school.
In my eyes I visualize that we all will see the message that God has for us.
