100 percent

You see trees
changing into beautiful things
full of bright colored leaves.
I see nature dying
like everything always does.
You see people walking
hand in hand, in love
deeper than anyone could imagine.
I see two people
drawn together by something special
but then stuck
because they didn't know anything else.
You see passion
and talent in the words
on your computer screen
written by me.
I see worry and hope
that maybe these words
will get me out of this struggle.
You see friends
in the hallways
of dormitories
laughing about nonsence
I see strangers
still being strangers
full of unknown things
just waiting to be found out.
You see a world
fighting for peace
fighting to make everything better.
Believing that there is
some good in everything.
I see people dying
communities falling apart
and everything as unfixable
there is good in nothing.
You see the world
through your eyes
you see it
as a positive thing.
I see the world
through my eyes
eyes that have see the worst of things
eyes that were once always full of tears
eyes that have faces
buried deep inside
of the people who betrayed me.
I see everything as a negative.
We may be in the same place
and looking out the same window
but from where you're sitting
everything is 100% different.
