Reasons

Give me a reason for seeing,

When all around is blind.

Give me a reason for listening

When deafness is all I can find.

Give me a reason for thinking….

A reason for using my mind.

Give me a reason for living….

For being a part of mankind.

In my sight there is death,

In my listening, its sounds,

In my thinking its reasons

In my living its bounds.

But, when my spirit weakens,

I look into the eyes of my children,

and my childrens’ children,

For there I see myself.

For there I see hope.

For there I see love.

For there I see an innocent defiance

That has the strength to overcome anything.

For there I see a spirit that does not know how to give in.

For there is my reason for living.
