Today As I Reflect Upon My Blessed Life - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
I have been tested and criticized,
By the best.
And have had obstacles placed,
Directly in front of my own footsteps.
I've lived in a project!
And was still compared to suburbanites.
Some folks I am related to,
Didn't speak to me...
Because they believed I thought I was 'white'.
So foolish are those with that insight.
Today as I reflect upon my blessed life...
I realize how blind many are,
Choosing darkness over a vision of lighted sight.
And I thank God day and night,
For allowing me to witness His gift!
Without feeling compelled to be limited,
To pressures of isolated ignorance that exist!
There is so much to be grateful for.
Each day I recognize this more and more!
