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
