The Fool That I Am

Some Blind Men

Can

Really See

-

Ray Charles

and

Stevie Wonder

learned from

Their Blindness

to Be, 

To Really Be

Who they were/are

-

Their Blindness

was

in a Way

A Major Gift

Coming from 

Their Hearts

-

Bobby Blue Bland

sang

"I Pity the Fool"

Singing With Derision

for Others - 

Following His Example

related to

His Lost Love

-

My Fool

is Me

--

Being Blind

for Me

was

Not Recognizing

my "Handicap"

Not Hearing

My Own Voice

until (Probably)

It was

Too Late

-

Through Not

Listening Deeply

Beyond the Clutter

- Not Hearing

My Own Heart

I Couldn't

I Wouldn't

Hear

The Important

Voice

from Beyond

The Rainbow

May Be Gone

The Splintered

Pieces

Adrift

-

If Necessary

I Will

Piece Things

Back

Together

But Why?

Why???

Did

I Need

to Destroy

Not Only

a Major

Part 

of My Soul

But

Another's Heart
