I'm learning each and everyday, from a young man who can hardly speak. He teaches me something new each day, as I watch him mop and sweep.
His staggered gate doesn't stop him, from walking to work each day. And everytime I talk to him, he has a smile and a nice word to say.
As he struggles to open the liner, to empty the trash each night, I am reminded of how much he has, visioned cleared with true insight.
He has no degrees or education, but he is wiser than most I've met. And tonight I saw him setting alone, head bowed -- he seemed upset.
"What's wrong Brandon?", I asked. He replied, "Nothing is wrong with me." "I feel bad for a kid I saw, he's little and can't even see!"
