As I look at the world through these jaded eyes

All I see is selfishness hate & greed

Judgment & harshness

Solitude & pain


How do you see me when you use your eyes?

Are you jaded too? Controlled by pain?

Is your lens different?

Do you see beauty coming out of the dark?


A lens that is clean and unscratched

A lens that is pure & allows us to see

The perspective we seek is only found here

Are we willing to use the lens of truth?


I write from the perspective of places I’ve been

Places I’m going & the place that I am

Perspective is how I view it all

The problem with perspective is that it always uses a lens
