Tinted Window

Lookin through a tinted window
everything is dark and unclear
cant see the brightness in life
only can see the shadows that cast over it
wondering, waiting, for this window to be removed
wondering, waiting, for this heart to be soothed.
days, weeks, months, years,
still looking through this tinted window
everything still remains dark and unclear
is their anything better?
or is life a series of tinted window....that can only be broken if you choose to break it.

    Brilliant poem, to get the best view of life you must see it unobstructed, go out, rather then watch from with-in. a beautiful piece. keep writing.

    Your window on the world is tinted. A fascinating use of metaphor. Very
    orginal. Ten for you.

    Kindest regards,

    Sandra

    good but I think it could be a lil better just in the fact of how short it is and the underlying of more needed information and story....still well writen though +
