Those windows

JUNIOR THE VERSIFIER 1980 (DIEGO MARTIN)



The perception about the many windows
That investigate the world.
Is the perception of the eyes?
That is within those windows.

How easy it is.
For the world looking on the outside
And not knowing.
The hardship that lies within

Through one window
A single mother
Struggled to take care of her family.

Through another window
A widower
Contemplate a loved one.
That passed on for many years.

Through another window
A woman feels.
The abuse of a drunken husband.

Through another window
Many children
Go to bed hungry.

Can you see?
The reflection to these windows.
As you stand on the sidewalk
Looking up
At the many lights within the windows.

Yet you cannot perceive.
The true reality
Behind those windows.
