My Eyes

My eyes have seen the worst of things
The least thought of that meant something
The broken and the lost that were
Once like you and I disturbed

Disturbed by life, their world shattered
Alone to fend, as they don't matter

My eyes have seen the young at heart
Losing their way as torn apart
Has its way with them again
Again this dance of then and when

When will we see the wounded down?
The cries that call for help Hell bound
The need to have someone love them
The care not too but judge, condemn

Blinders worn by many here
Upon our earth, normal appears
All too good to give one time
Time freely to cross the lines

Lines that keep mankind behind
Life lines in hands, useless in mind

My eyes have seen the fall of man
The passing days less in demand
As one more life or lives will lose
A chance to take, on Him to choose

My eyes have seen like yours today
Our role, the now to save the day
With just kind words or kinder acts
Extending hands to change what lacks

My eyes have seen a better day
Like yours I'm sure that lost their way
As GOD reveals before our eyes
The call to arms, again to try

To see that GOD in us abides
