Rose Colored Glasses

Rose Colored Glasses

Not always an easy thing to wear.

"Made for dreamers, searchers and believers" they say

"Not at all practical in the real world."

"What?" may I ask, "is reality?"

To look at the darkness this world at time holds?

To feel the coldness that men can freely hand out?

The hunger of a child or the widow left in pain?

The heaviness of a father as he can't pay all the bills?

The mother working frantically to cloth her child?

The days can be dismal full of envy and strife.

The nights they can haunt you, casting shadows upon the dreams left behind.

The negative vibrations reverberating off the very core of the earth from men turning aside from a neighbor in need.

and then there is me

I see a bright future for all who reach out.

I see hope on the morrow giving way through the pain.

I see joy and love in abundance,

I see laughter and smiles.

I see dreams that are unending.

I see a world full of hope.

"Rose Colored Glasses" you say?

I wear them proudly.

I see clearly


I not only hope, dream, love, laugh and look forward to my tomorrow,

but I'll look for you as well.

Maybe one day, you'll try them on

and see

a more beautiful world,

through Rose Colored Glasses.

About this poem:
I've been told too many times I wear "Rose Colored Glasses" and don't look at things with a real perspective. No, seeing things positively and with hope is my reality. It's what I choose,not just for myself, but the hopes of a better tomorrow.

thumbs up I nearly always wear rose coloured glasses but every now and then they come off and I see the reality of our world, a glimps of the negetive, the pain and suffering so I grab the rose coloured glasses and back on they go and the friendly safe world returns. Lucky are we that we can do that. To Quote Kermit the frog " Someday we'll find it the rainbow connection the lovers the dreamers and me"thumbs up
Your glasses give an accurate view of what is to come,
nice write,

Hi, ForeverDestiny,
There's nothing wrong with rose-colored glasses. One must first envision; then, actualize. Through faith and hard work, dreams can be transformed into reality.
Thank you to each of you. Without action, nothing happens. Without vision, there is no action. Without imagination there is no vision. Without faith, hope and love, there is no beauty to imagination. I pray we all wear them daily, the rose colored glasses...
