In Your Eyes

Poem By Lydia J. McFarland

In your eyes, I see
a child longing to be free.
The child sees no color,
but feels we should love one another.

In your eyes, I see
the question;
Why put one through so much misery?

You are free,
yet you keep the child imprisoned.

In your eyes, I see
guilt, hurt, anger and fear.

Yet you do not come forth,
Why do you procrastinate?
Is this child a part of you, your innerself?

Let the child be free,
do not pity it with your
heartaches and complaints.

In your eyes, I see
that the child,
grows weak and withers away.

I do have these feelings.

I care for you so much,

I'm jealous of your friends,
That golden bond, you all share.

the ladies would smile and stare.

How many secrets untold,
does one treasure chest hold
in the possession of Pandora's Box?

Summary Of Phillippians 3: 12-20

I am not perfect, nor have I acquired all
of the skills required in order to enter
The Almighty's Kingdom.
I do not forget my past, nor do I dwell on it,

Held Captive By You

your words and inspiration
for they are like tender caresses,
on my brown skin,
your wisdom captivates my mind,
