Same, but different views

The same person, a different view.

Your mind wonders
You wonder how you arrived at such a place
So free, limitless, untouchable
You breathe in the free pure air
Absorb the innocent views, too pure to criticise 
You are your greatest friend

	Your mind wonders
	The snarl at this cruel world
	Unfair, hateful and disrespectful
	The smell of anger fill your lungs
	Sights you see are to be censored
	Trust no one but yourself

Paradise, the smile you wear catches
Others see your view and are embraced
You truly have blessed your self 
You hold wealth in the palm of your hands
You want for nothing
You have everything that your heart desires

	Paradise, a place that is only dreamed of.
	Why embrace when others don’t care you say
	Church is the only place that can bless you
	You can not see wealth
	You will never have enough
	Your heart will desire everything you have not.

You are of great stature
A simple person of simple needs
Simple by way of perception
Nothing is a challenge
Tasks are presented to you 
You take them as positive lessons

	You struggle with only yourself
	A simple desire to love to hate
	To you, nothing is free
A walk in the park presents its challenge
	Nothing is your fault
	Everyone else is to blame
