A Different Lens

If I just take a moment not just to look
But to really see through a different lens
I see new colors, no longer faded but vivid
I notice something different, because I am different

The world is not just black and white
But so many different hues and shades
And sometimes I think something should be my way
But taking the time for a different view brings light

When I put aside judgements or preconceptions
And just live for this precious moment I'm given
I can let go of things that hold me back
And have the courage to see in a new way

The old has passed away, the new has come
And there is precious grace in that knowledge
That letting go means beginning again
And taking a leap of faith

And seeing.  In a new light.

Just by changing the lens.
