Smile Zone

I passed this man a thousand times
And a thousand times I felt such guilt
Entering a house with all the trimmings
While he enters the box house he built
A humble man he is, named Steve 
Who appears to be mid-thirty
Who thinks light of his dry blistery skin
and his attire that’s filthy and dirty
He’s more concerned about others
Employed by servicing smiles 
Walking his beat on his blistery feet
Through city streets for miles
I’ve offered him a dollar or two
Yet he always insist to decline
I’ve handed him fresh clothes to wear
But he always says "I like mine”
Claiming he never takes from others
That he only owns "Giving Hands”
That one shouldn’t judge by appearance
Under his filth, he’s a wealthy young man
"I have no desire for a big ole house
Or those pricey clothes you exhibit
Materials are not as valuable as..
The true essence of how I am living”
"I draw on breathes of appreciation;
A pleasure to just be alive
To wake daily and enjoy this world I’m in
I never feel starved or deprived”
"I give out all my belongings
To anyone in more need than I….
Only keeping what I can’t live without
My respect, my dignity and pride”
"I still rest in warmth without any heat
Supplied by my righteous young heart
I’m nourished through the good Lord above me
Who loves me for doing my part”
"So I smile more and I hurt much less
Knowing I am setting an example
To those who fret over material things
And fall short of just being thankful”
"I will propose to you a free token
Words that will bring you delight
Look past one’s external frontage.. 
Priceless assets are not found in ones sight”
"You’ll find houses and condo’s mean nothing
Jewelry, cars and clothes are just a waste
When chosen possession with a heart in mind
You will prefer a more natural taste” 
You will want what I have, for it is free-
No cost to own inner peace 
Just own hands that give and take much less
As a person, your value will increase

O Lord, take my love, and let it flow in fullness of devotion to Thee;
O Lord, take my hands, and let them work incessantly for Thee;
O Lord, take my soul, and let it be merged in One with Thee;
O Lord, take my mind and thoughts, and let them be in tune with Thee;
O Lord, take my everything, and let me be an instrument to work for Thee.
