Long Hair

By Kelly Elizabeth Miller

If you see someone walking down the street
with long hair and no shoes on his feet
don't say "there goes a hippy" and start
making fun. He's only a boy and
some mothers son.

I've never seen Jesus, don't know
how he looks. But I've accepted his
pictures that I have seen in some books.
I've seen that he had long hair,
wore a robe and that his feet were bare.

So don't critize the boy,
you don't know if he's just doing
"his thing" when he let's his hair grow.

So, for God's sake, don't laugh and make
fun because the next one you see
may be your son!
