Walk in my shoes for one single day, Then you’ll see why I need to pray..
Come live in my home for a week or two, and then remember I am just like you.
I didnt ask for the things I was given, I didnt choose this road I have taken Walk a mile with me hand in hand, Then perhaps you will understand.
I’m not really complaining about the stress in my life, I know that we all have some toil and some strife.
But walk with me, when you think I am wrong, walk with me and you’ll start to belong.
Embrace my sorrows, like they are your own, And then you will know me And see I have grown.
The journey I take is different from yours, My life took one of those unexpected detours, But this road that I travel is not really so long, If the people who watch me will join in my song..
Listen to my footsteps and watch how I dance, And then you will know me and give me a chance.
Take heart and remember It can happen to you, who knows where my pathway will cross over to you?
So speak to me softly if you can’t understand, Remember I once stood right there where you stand.
And walk with me gently when the day is at end. And then I will know I can call you my friend…
