Walk a Mile in My Shoes

Walk a Mile in My Shoes

Walk a mile in my shoes

Feel all the years of abuse.

See life through my eyes;

Shed all the lonely tears I’ve cried.

Have people look down on you -

Never know love, real or true…

So until you’ve been where I have been

Forced to commit crimes and live through endless sin

Don’t cast your judgments upon me.

Look through my eyes

And see what I see

Feel all the hurt and agony

Then walk another mile in my shoes.
