Peering around, what can I see
Reality is there, all around me
Everywhere I look, what I see
I know, could anything else be?
Reference and how it’s framed,
Changes in opinion, mustn’t be blamed.
Seek the truth, not just noticed.
Listen for perspective, even the remotest.
Positions might change, with a bit more fact
A different way of seeing things really isn’t whacked.
Explanations matter, don’t’cha know?
Careful, too fast a change, risk vertigo!
Change your point of view,
You might learn something new!
Take a stand or change your attitude
Watching your perspective can stop a feud.
Interpretation of what you observe,
Wisdom keeps you from being absurd.
Victory is yours indeed,
If you stop and consider what others need.
Eventually, you’ll get it straight,
Changing your perspective is never too late.
I can’t tell you for sure how long it took me to put this poem together, I started it but kept falling asleep. 🙂 So it SEEMED like it took forever!
Over the years I’ve learned the shifting your perspective can be a very valuable thing to do. Having a tenant who has dealt with extreme poverty and what that means in day to day life has been an eye-opener for me. It’s helping me to reshape some of my expectations and my perspectives.
