Do You See Me

You look at me and then quickly look away.
But I saw the fear in your eyes.
I thrive on that fear.
It gives me power -- and respect.

Do you see these broken teeth?
A guy smashed my face in with a bat,
and I smashed his with a metal rod.

Do you see these scars?
A broken beer bottle was the weapon,
such a fight goes both ways.

I have scars on my arms
and my face.

You are right to be afraid of me.

But do you see?
Do you see the homeless boy,
making a bed in the dirt of the baseball field
behind the school.

Do you see the boy,
starved for love and a place to belong,
and receiving instead,
only apathy or harsh judgment.

Wait, I know you, teacher.

Do you see?
I was once your student,
but now I survive
the only way I know how.

So when you look at me,
when you really see me,
I don't want you to be afraid.
That little boy is still there.
Somewhere.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
