About the Poem
I wrote this poem many years ago as a child. So when you read this you must look at it through a child's eyes. I was a child, seeing things as simple - trying to understand why adults in society have such a hard time getting along with others, and understanding life in general.
A Simple Need
A simple need,
A simple deed,
The woefulness of it all.
A cast of good.
A cast of bad,
The blindfulness of it all.
Must we see not,
Or do not,
Want all or want none?
Shall I believe in you,
Or distrust you;
Shall freedom become all?
Shall the white man become colorblind?
Shall the black man not hate?
Will we all forget the promise,
Or will we all believe in Him?
