This isn't really a poem, just an opinion/thought I've tried to put into words.
"Everything in life is perspective.
It is the core of everything.
Seeing it in different a light can change your view entirely.
For example imagine a tree,
Sitting in a whole forest across a wide river,
A single tree.
From your side of the river, the idea of losing this tree is nothing.
I mean it won't change the view, it's just one of hundreds.
The tree gets cut down and you don't notice from across the river.
Life goes on as normal.
One day you decide to go across and take a hike through the forest
You walk, admiring the beauty.
And then you get to a gap.
A single, empty gap in the forest.
It ruins the experience for you, and you think about how inconsiderate people must of been to do this.
It is then that you realise that this ugly gap was you.
The tree lost was the tree you took.
From one side of the river, no one noticed, it was so insignificant
