The aspect

Through chains the sniff of freedom holds an air so deliciously sweet

And a gift through deprivation raises tears of brief relief

While through a monstrous malady the glimmer of recovery shines bright

And to the woefully disadvantaged the smallest seed casts light

To those deprived of justice a grain of truth enthuses

And for all who live without, the hand of help is soothing

And from the lower rungs, encouragement is wealth

And down at hand can smile when an outstretched arm brings help

The seemingly insignificant is grand when relatively set

And the minuscule is mighty when viewed in fitting context

It’s all about the angle

It’s all about the altitude

It’s all about the attitude

It’s all about the aspect
