From Whose Perspective


Does one expect...
A peace of mind that takes time to get.

From whose perspective,
Does it affect...
What one wishes has not come to them yet.

And who awakens with the Sunrise on their mind to find,
A Sunset they regret...
With anticipating Sun,
To realize what comes is done unexpected.

And who awakens with the morning dew to view,
To only then complain...
About their aches and pains,
With a wish the day brings rain.

And who awakens with the Sunrise on their mind to find,
A Sunset they regret...
With anticipating Sun,
To realize what comes is done unexpected.

From whose perspective,
Does one expect...
A peace of mind that takes time to get.

And...
From whose perspective,
Does it affect...
What one wishes has not come to them yet.

THE CHANCELLOR mused as he nibbled his pen

To fight for their country and Kaiser;
