Through rose tinted glasses

Do I have rose-tinted glasses on when I see

How things are in my parent country

The land I had left years ago for opportunities more

Has it acquired an aura it did not have before

Such that everything is bathed in a positive light

People exude happiness, the future looks bright

The problems that seemed gigantic previously

Do not appear as enormous any longer to me

Is it real or is it my distorted perception

Is my patriotic fervor causing deception

Or am I comparing my motherland to my adopted land

Whose strengths and weaknesses now I better understand

My outlook on where I live now is no longer rosy

The rosy hue has shifted to my parent country..


What is better and where is a question for which it is difficult to find

A unanimous answer, different aspects come to mind

The place that you don’t live in constantly

Is the one that with rose colored glasses you see
