Sit back and consider...
Walk a mile in their shoes your sister or your brother,
take a look in the mirror before you judge another.
Walk a mile in their shoes who have a different colored skin,
remember the soul has no color, all women and men.
Walk a mile in their shoes the drunkards that you see,
they may have fought in a war and you can not know what ills maybe.
Walk a mile in their shoes, the homeless sleeping on the floor,
if that was your loved one would you shut the door?
Walk a mile in their shoes the mentally impaired,
they also have a gift they want to share.
Walk a mile in their shoes, the angry, or depressed,
sometimes we cannot see what happened to these people, we can only guess.
Walk a mile in their shoes the prostitute on the street,
they may have been mentally tortured, abused, or beat.
Walk a mile in their shoes the criminal in jail,
I would be willing to bet they grew up in hell.
Walk a mile in their shoes the illegal from Mexico,
are we not just as guilty when we made the Indians go!
Walk a mile in their shoes fill the blisters on their feet,
don’t judge a book by it’s cover these people that you meet.
You see, no matter who you are,
the rich, the poor, we all have our hidden scares.
So the next time you see a person and they have walked a mile in the dirt,
And they seem to be sad, lonely, and filled with hurt, wash their feet, dry their tears, and give them your shoes.
