We Don't See Straight

Updated on April 10, 2012

Squint And Look Again

Everytime I look I see a different picture

Like a camera with endless memory

I can learn to appreciate and value

All things that are not mine to keep

I enjoy life a little more

Knowing it will not last

Things that make me feel special

Will disappear and forever change

Welcoming new joys to fill my day

The old will be forgotten

Maybe it's time

To find good in the rotten

Not so quickly disguard that faded mirrror that worked so well

To see new in something old

Even if it is not quite up to par

To find something broken and understand it once worked so well

It served it's purpose

Understanding if it was the only one in the world

Would we still throw it away or would the broken now do

Finding a way to accept things as they are

Enjoying what I have,what I will miss and what is and always will be

A life of hidden beauty

      Princess Prisca If you have a problem it is good to see all sides of the poblem.Most of the time we get so caught up we can not see anyones point of view except our own.We hate to admit it but we may not always be right.So if we pretend we are someone else and see it their way it may give us a better understanding and a solution we never expected.I love your faith and in the end it is amazing how all things work out.

      DREAM ON,

      Wow, I really like this a lot. Great Job!

      It reminds me that we (human beings) can only see a part of the picture.

      Sometimes we react to that piece of the picture, not waiting until God supplies more pieces or the whole picture altogether.

      Such a great outlook on life, I am blessed to have met you.


      Ciao...Princess Prisca
