My vision for 2020

20/20 (2020) Vision

by the13thpoet

I woke up one morning
My vision was kind of blurry
I was used to seeing perfectly
So of course I started to worry

I rubbed my eyes and waited a while
My vision soon became clearer
But I realized I had trouble seeing
When things got a little nearer

I guess I'm just getting old
There's no need to fight it
I went from 20/20 vision
To now being farsighted

So now I use reading glasses
To see small things and read
But I still find it hard to see
Why this world is full of hate and greed

There's a war against love and decency
And it's causing mass division
Let's end this fight between left and right
That's my new 2020 vision
