The blind head-butting the blind. What a situation to be in. I'm just glad either of you did not go over the rail cause it was a long way down. A blind man sees with his others senses and hopes those with eyes see where he is going or coming. This is a good entry for the Being Blind contest.

Wow! What a day to remember. I will say the blind man had guts. I especially like your last stanza because of this. The seeing don't always see, do we?

A very well-written heartfelt poem about the little accident that happen one day on the way home when you bumped into a blind person while you were off guard for a moment.

All the way they walk down to home, on way, a blind man intervened the way, later you had your separate way, people only stared at you; well said, well done. Thank you for sharing. Write to inspire -- DR ALCREATOR

You tell the story very well of your head-butt encounter with the blind man. It is written in an engaging manner, then further involves the reader by asking a pertinent question at the end. I can just imagine the looks on those other people's faces.

I enjoyed your poem. The fact that the man was blind, I wondered f he didn't have a seeing eye dog, But then do they go up and down escalators? Probably some do,

    Hi Patricia. Thanks for the review,, no dog and probably not allowed as I have not seen one. The man had no eyesight and that's part of the wonder of how he could do this or achieve it..

I cannot begin to imagine what it is like. I admire the blind man who can see better than those that can. Their light is the darkness. Great poem. Hope you win!
