Perfect Sight


Even those with perfect sight

See the world through a lens

The light that meets our eyes

Bent by fortune and friends


A filtered understanding

As our past, all we know

Prescription for a life

Cast in rose colored glow


Strain your eyes, look beyond

The scratched and dirty glass

See the ones unseen before

The ones so easy to walk past


Stare long into the eyes of man

See the world in unshaded view

Know that but by other luck

The person you pass could be you

    Love these words of wisdom, Brad. It’s a fine line between success and failure. Karma may come back to bite us.
