Perspective - Poem by Sophie Nixon

This does not look right

Is it dirt? A smudge?

Must be on the outside

Is it on the outside?

Or reflected from the inside?

Do you see what I see?

Or do you have the long view
short view
high view
narrow view
whilst I have a dim view
I long for a clear view

This is still the same view, tired view
Shouldn't this be a changing view?
a growing view?
a better view?
I want to have a true view
Step outside
and realise
the real view

    I want to have a true view
    Step outside and see the real view
    Good theme.
    One should judge me after he has walked a mile in my shoes. Perspectives differ, so there are different visions.
