Through The Same Window.

The perspective of individual varies
 that which is sweet to one
 becomes a poison to other
 the one sees stars
 looking out of the window
 the other sand and pebbles
 while seeing through the same window.
 With perceptions at such a large deviance
 no two could be the same
 with attitudes and understanding
intersecting and contradicting most
 Yet to survive in this world
 where incongruities are at work
 a compromise and a let go resignation
 should take the prime place
with that anyone could get along
 let alone succeeding in life
 as success is not the only thing'
 that matters most in reality
 while there being great consequences
that need be tackled with skill.
