Perspective and Perception

“Perspective and Perception”

I stand here proud

Draped in my dress

A specimen so fine

Yet a being so stressed

Weight of the world on my shoulders

And still forward I press

I glare into the distance

Wondering “Is it my time yet?”

I’m sure you think you know me

But the fact is I’m an enigma

Impossible to understand

How I trot through the tasks on my agenda

I bite down on my tongue

Stick to my morals like glue

Perception is that the man is in control

But what you perceive is not always true

    Fantastic write and I have to agree with the others on the importance of what is our persepective in how we define it all!
