Poem In Your Pocket

A Different View

I see what I see
I see you
              unfiltered
honestly

as you are
                now

I see myself
with unsettled eyes
         through
         the words

         past the lies

I see what I see
I see what I
              want to be

I see you breathe
I see you
                 believe

I would like to see
            myself
               differently

April 26th is
Poem in Your Pocket Day, a day to celebrate poetry by selecting a poem, carrying it in your pocket, and sharing it with friends and strangers.
Share a poem wherever the day takes you; in the workplace, coffee shop, shopping mall, or out on the street. Poetry can brighten your world.
You may already have favorite poem, but I offer you this one in case it’s not handy.

ENJOY TODAY (and tomorrow too).

You can always find poetry at:
