What do you see # 118 – January 24, 2022

Wearing Rose Colored Glasses

I’ve often been told
that I wear these red specs
my rose colored glasses
tied tight ’round my neck
but I don’t see it that way
not that way at all
I call it positivity
Helping you not to fall.
But sometimes it comes
back to bite me real hard
’cause I ignored the true facts
like a red joker card.
And so I must take
my glasses off to be clear
that the choices I make
are the ones I won’t fear.
Now I know what you’re thinking
old habits won’t change
but I really will try
to make my mind rearrange.
I’ll see the true facts
as they truly are shown
not making them rosy
making all options known.
I’ll try to see clearly
try to make a smart choice
and stick so completely
proud that it’s really my voice.

  1. I’ve often been accused of seeing things through rose tinted glasses. And as you said I too defend my position by saying that I don’t ignore the facts but an optimist by nature. Thanks for joining in!
