If you tally every time you trip
Apologize to passerby
For every tipped glass and
Every concrete stumble
With a
Sorry, I’m clumsy
You’re telling a story

You think but
It may not be
Statistical reality
But how you’ve created
You

It’s as simple and
As complicated
As paying attention to your grace
And stressing your strengths

A Contrast in Perspective

Composed 3/8/16
Description: For today’s Daily Prompt: Contrast.

The world through rose colored glasses
And that makes you
Blind
