A Different Perspective - Poem by James Royster

I see intelligence, knowledge and wisdom beyond his age.
Society sees anger, hatred, and eyes filled with rage.

I see someone who is full of success.
Society sees someone who will never be the best.

I see someone who longs for a hug.
Society sees an uneducated thug.

All men may be created equal in their own eyes,
but society has a Different Perspective,
and this is the cause of my demise.

    I agree with you James. It's the Different Perspective can sometimes be a cause of demise. Well said.
