A Different Perspective - Poem by Angela McCrimmon

I can see you talking but all I hear is noise,
You control the volume but I don't have a choice,
I'm caught up in this madness and you don't seem to see,
I feel like I am drowning out here in the sea.

I can see you laughing but all I feel is pain,
You can find things funny where I find them insane,
I want to feel the joy just like I did before,
I used to have some faith but I don't have anymore.

I can see you comprehend but I don't understand,
You all talk independence but I'm reaching for your hand,
In such deep desperation I look to you for hope,
I hear the words 'Be strong' but I can barely cope.

I can see you smiling but my smile is all but gone,
You use the word 'together' yet I feel I don't belong,
My world and yours they seem so far apart,
You can see the end while I can't see the start.

You can see your future where I can see my past,
My only expectation is I know that it won't last,
You can see tomorrow but I see yesterday,
Maybe we will look out through the same eyes one day.

    What you see depends on where you're standing - point of view differs on perspective. A well articulated piece of poetry, insightfully penned in lovely rhyme scheme with conviction. Thanks for sharing Angela. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
