a change in perspective


A change in perspective
will change a sunshine filled hour
into a melting, hot, and unbearable eternity.

A change in perspective
will change a meadow of flowers
into a plot of weeds.

A change in perspective
will change a barren wasteland
into a field of opportunity.

A change in perspective
will change a bleak, dark room
into a place of sweet rest.

A change in perspective
is all anyone needs
so go and change.
Make flowers out of weeds.
