My Perception

My perception of life is strange,
I guess that's because my life has been full
of pain. Sometimes life to me is
so hard and sometimes I think I've been
too scared. Sometimes I can
see people looking at me strange, I
guess it's because they can't
see my pain. The way I look at things
I've noticed is different, I don't
see people view them as some do.
To me people tell a story,
they give people something to learn
from, something to gain, even
if it's their pain. Some believe my perception
is in vain, But my perception deeply
comes from pain, see I told you I see
things differently, I see
people for who they are and who
they want to be.
