Rose Tinted Glasses

Shades of gray
Rose tinted glasses
Metaphor to life
No wonder Holly Golightly ate breakfast at Tiffany’s
Reality is all she could ignore
The price of life was her freedom confined
Walking on a tightrope
Balancing her mind
Laughter filled her day
Sadness has no place
Life is to short to wallow it away
Some may think this uncaring
Who is to argue?
But it has it place in the morning
Metaphor to life
Are simply lessons learned
Unlocked mysteries
Path worn by tracks
Visions realized dreams take flight
Standing on the edge of life
Where is sweet Holly today?
Looking into the window
Wishing it all away.
