A Different Perspective

Poem By James Royster

I see intelligence, knowledge and wisdom beyond his age.
Society sees anger, hatred, and eyes filled with rage.

I see someone who is full of success.
Society sees someone who will never be the best.

I see someone who longs for a hug.
Society sees an uneducated thug.

All men may be created equal in their own eyes,
but society has a Different Perspective,
and this is the cause of my demise.

Comments about A Different Perspective

I agree with you James. It's the Different Perspective can sometimes be a cause of demise. Well said. Peace.

God's Masterpiece

I tried to write about you, but the words
weren't special enough.

I tried to sing about you, but the notes

Self-Doubt

I have fought my battles and overcame them all,
But the current task is not something small.

It encompasses all of me.

Identity

How can I smile when 2/3 of me have been
oppressed? Yet I am told to just hold my head
up and do my best.

Depression

I have no reason to smile, no reason to cry.
No reason to live, no reason to die.

I have no reason to laugh, no reason to pout

The Most Beautiful Thing

I've seen a flower whose petals refuse to fall.
I've seen a woman who looks like a beautiful queen doll.

I've seen the majestic eagle soar across the sky.
