I Spy

I spy with my grown-up eye, a grown-up world.
(I see limits and boundaries and red-tape.)

You spy with your child eye, a child’s world.
(You see possibility and to infinity and beyond.)

I spy something gray.
(Rejection. Hurt.)

You spy something yellow.
(Warm sunshine.)

I spy something red.
(Danger.  War.)

You spy something green.
(Pretty leaves.)

I spy something black.
(Unknown.  Fear.)

You spy something blue.
(Calm waters.)

Your child-eyes see much more clearly.
They haven’t yet lost their focus.

(I pray they never will.)

    Well I thought it was a good idea at the time…I do my own stunts…Keep it rolling Asa and always follow your dreams.
