The Way I See It

The Way I See It

My life has been similar to an open book
I’m welcoming, friendly as well as sharing
Caring to a fault personally and internet hooked
Better than any person? Regular Joe not joking

Distant to some blood relatives
Closer to some friends - though I value family ties
Sometime strangers are more meaningful
To share, to engage, talk about anything at all

Be mindful not to judge the book by its cover
Those pictures or postings on the social media
Are just to show I’m not shy nor a push over
Flaunting they’re not may be with some euphoria?

Trend setting to say the least not gullible
I’m no better than a dreamer nor a noble
Nor desiring 15 minutes of fame
Imparting inspirational wisdom on grand scheme

Competition by nature for the weak full of hope
Action speaks louder than words so dope
We’re all shooting for our best to survive
Skeleton in a closets? Got nothing to hide

Strong willed person pushes the envelope
To feel life’s meaning of being alive
Darn if you do, shameful if you can’t cope
Nicer when you tell stories and remain alive

Only the strong rules if you allow them
Through journey, experience or process
One really should not failed or be dammed
Glance in the mirror? This is the way I see it!
