I am falling, no

Maybe I’m flying?

Guess that depends

On my perspective,


I could be dying, or

Merely just ending,

A chapter of this life,

Based on what I think,


We can see the beauty,

Of the roses or just,

The thorns that oppose

Us, using our minds


It’s not easy to change,

The perspective but,

If it’s your objective,

Your life will get better.

    We all see life differently and it is good.

      That’s true, thanks for reading!

      Well penned! Hard to get out of your own way sometimes!

      • PoeticBiscuit

        Sometimes our biggest stopping block is ourselves. Thanks for reading Dan!

      • Santita

        Wise words, life is all about perspective, well penned indeed!

        • PoeticBiscuit

          Perspective definitely plays a huge role on your moods and outlook on life. Which those two can affect a lot more.

          I think as we age, our perspective changes and hopefully for the better. This is very well written! Great job!

          • PoeticBiscuit

            That’s true, when we’re young we still have lost of wisdom and life experiences to learn! That’s why I love talking to elderly people, the things they say can really blow your mind.
