Points Of View
respect what you want in life
or else it'll turn to dust in your hands
these are tales from a
first hand account
the amount of woulda coulda shoulda's
that slipped through the fingers
does the regret linger?
only as learning lessons
a sankofa principle
backwards then move forward
with remembrance as your shield
see the field of dreams with an 'old' set of eyes
be patient with the patient
you're both under each other's care
know she's hurting just like you
needs more nursing
just like you
love is a battlefield
is it you against her
or the two of you against the world?
with so many stones hurled
from every direction
it's only natural we go into deflection mode
tainted mirrors do dampen reflections
but no one is borne
can you nudge
that inner-grudge to the left?
can you budge bit by bit
and perhaps meet somewhere in the middle?
solve two riddles like pieces of a puzzle?
it is the same landscape you share
just with different
points of view
