The view from my window

The view from my window

Was the opposite of a fallow

I could not help but think

What would change once I blink. 

I was eager to draw

This contrast of an abyss

It was then that I understood

Ignorance is bliss. 

The picture turned out well

My parents teasingly said

 “It is hard to tell, no offense”

Fortunately, none taken. 

I understood their hint of sarcasm

They wanted to test my enthusiasm

For my creativity was like a crucible

 And the sketch was actually beautiful 

I celebrated so loud

The neighbours got serious

I told them because I was proud

For I did the view justice.
