I am-

I am not the kind to say-
the words " I told you so "
or make a person feel afraid
to let there feelings show,
I am not the kind to blame
when something isn't right,
or turn away a friend in need-
instead help him in his fight,
I am not the reason why
the world is like it is,
you spread your hate-just because
and commit crimes against our kids,
I am just a simple man
that prays for peace and love,
who shares his acts of kindness
with the Blessing from above,
I am just a simple man
who does the best he can,
the kind who writes of love and life-
a humble man, I am.

By. Michael A. Watkins.
