Poetry is a clear window into the heart. I often write to express the thoughts and emotions inside me--not knowing what will appear on the page but invariably discovering more about myself and the world around me.

Perspective

Posted Monday, May 23, 2011

It's a funny thing
How we look at the world
How we decide
How we know
Without a doubt
That we're right
And they are wrong

It's interesting
Don't you think?
To watch
To observe
To wonder
What makes people tick

Their actions
Our actions
Aren't we all
Just figuring it out?

My perspective
Your perspective
It's a choice
It's a coat
A hat
A pair of shoes
That we put on

The sadness
The frustration
The victimhood
Comes
When we are stuck
Stuck in our outfits

This is the time
To try on something new
Wear someone else's shoes
Put on a different hat
Try on a new coat

You'll be surprised
By what you learn
About them
About me
About you
