Looks Can Be Deceiving

Poem By Lydia J. McFarland

Outside of me, I look different,
yet in a sense I am the same.
Inside me I am confused,
and full of shame.
Outside of me, I am fearless,
bold and Conquering,
Inside of me, I am lost,
and steady wandering.
Outside of me, I attack those,
that try to deceive me.
Inside of me, I want love,
peace and harmony.
Outside of me, nothing matters, but
Inside of me,
My heart often shatters.
Outside of me, I am searching for something. but
Inside of me, I already possess it.

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

In Your Eyes

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

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