What do YOU see ?

You say: “matter of perspective”

and I know you disagree

You claim my vista isn’t true,

so I guess that yours must be !


Once again I am diminished,

And dismissed by clever words

My thoughts and feelings stand ignored

As though I’ve not been heard


Yes, I could call it ‘arrogance’

Your rising up so high

To make such profound judgement

And pronounce my views a lie


But grace pleads for another way

To turn the other cheek

Though do not think me spineless

or consider that I’m weak
