my visions

Mon, 03/23/2020 - 09:25 -- Aws

Through different eyes we see the world.
I see the poor, struggling alone,
Limited by their circumstances,
Held back through no fault of their own.

I see climate change as a threat,

Affecting us now, but mainly the affect later on
Considering the whole matter a hoax,
You respond with “i dont care” laughter.

I see people in desperate need

Of medical care that they can afford--
Care that's not a privilege but
A right leaving no one ignored.
You, too, believe in health care

But not as a right that people deserve.
With you it seems as though the idea
Of helping others strikes a nerve.

People who make large amounts

Of money can therefore afford to pay
Higher taxes than the poor.
To me it just makes sense that way.

Another giant issue that comes

From seeing the world through different eyes
Is the notion that what I call facts
Are to you nothing but lies.

It's not a matter of good or bad;
It's just a matter of point of view.
Based on all our experiences,
We see the world the way we do.
