Spectacle Perspective

Maybe people are born
with clear spectacles.
Experiences colour these spectacles.
Glasses half full people are rose coloured.
Glasses half empty see world as dark and bleak.
Travel shakes the glasses off many noses
with different horizons.
Everything alters the colour of the glasses.
Parents put on their children’s and
they see a fresh new world.
Parents put their views of the world on their children
and teach them things they did not know.
This is not always good but
this is not always bad.
At the end of a person’s life
they lay their spectacles down
hoping their view of the world
will not be completely forgotten
because it was spectacular.
