Perception Glasses

 
I never thought that I would come back to the city,
That once gave me a homely feeling,
Because I was wearing my old PERCEPTION GLASSES.
I hated so much about the city, the surrounding people,
That I left that city with so much hatred in my mind,
Because I was wearing my old PERCEPTION GLASSES.
I always blamed the gossiping people,
But never tried to reason why they acted like that,
Because I never changed my PERCEPTION GLASSES.
People perceive things as they are brought up,
Going out of my comfort zone,
I realized that we perceive things also through our surroundings,
It really isn’t the fault in people,
But I never tried to come out of my comfort bubble,
Because I was wearing my old PERCEPTION GLASSES.
I was divorced and afraid of people asking about it,
I never saw that it was just their own PERCEPTION GLASSES.
Because, I never tried to change my PERCEPTION GLASSES.
Divorce is a journey that I had to perform by myself,
Expecting someone to understand what I’m going through,
Wasn’t my part to be judgmental, what actually was,
To change my old PERCEPTION GLASSES.
I came to this new city where no one cared about my divorce,
No one was interested in my life,
That’s when I realized that,
The only person who was there during my journey was me,
The only person I should have listen was just me,
The only person I should have cared long back was just me,
What people say and judge about my situation,
Was just their old PERCEPTION GLASSES…
But I always had a chance to choose,
Whether I would adapt their PERCEPTION GLASSES or change mine.
