"Kind words can be short and easy to say, but their echoes are truly endless." -Mother Theresa

The back of me seems so numb,
The other part is overcome with pure shock.
Maybe it’s just me; perhaps it’s this calming breeze,
What I saw before is like nothing compared to the beautiful present;
Right now you have me overcome with glee.
See you used to frustrate me,
Make my life impossible, unbearable, and tough;
Yet now you are gently whispering upon the walls of my broken heart.
Your influence is a melody, your presence a remedy,
My body relaxed at the breaking dawn.
Your smile is upon the sun of day
Your lips are whispering salvation, not of decay.
And this is why I am beginning to say
I wouldn’t trade my life for any other way.

The author's comments:
First impressions are sometimes nothing what they seem. People evolve and change with the beautiful unfolding of night and day, bringing forth new identities and new individuality. “New Perspective” is a poem of this knowledge.
