Are You Out There

The Difference In What We See

The different realities

I see a beautiful soul in need of comfort,
After the agony life has dictated,
You see a drunken foolish woman,
One that you’d like to see naked.

I see a crying unhappy baby,
Hungry and tired at that,
You see an annoyance,
Just a screaming brat.
