Happy MLK Day

WHEN WE LOOK UP

Sometimes we’re so busy we can’t see the road,

when we keep looking down at our shoes.

When is the last time you looked up to the sky,

to see the clouds as they pass by.

When was the last time you looked at the stars and see how bright they really are?

How about the moon when it turns bright bright orange.

Sometimes we need to stop looking down at our shoes and look up and see the flowers as they bloom.

And maybe a rainbow to lighten the load and maybe a song for the long walk home.

The shocking truth is you have a lot to lose when you keep looking down at your shoes.

 

HAPPY MLK  DAY
