A Fluid Perspective

openminded

Questions arise and stalk the darkest corners of the mind

Taking long held beliefs and finding their resilience undefined

Carving out new pathways to truths once denied

Old bias creaks under the weight of logic being applied

I saw  things from a different point of view before

That you give to someone once, and they’ll just be back for more

But having chased that greener grass on the other side

I know the bitter taste and heavy heart of swallowed pride

There is no fall from grace, no justice scales that tip

Just harsh circumstance, and the misfortune to slip

And next you know, you’re no longer even worth a light

The cloak of invisibility that comes with any plight

We live in a World where successes are  measured

Empirical scales tell us what should be treasured

Where you judge how your “progress” stands against others

Only seeing rivals, where you should be seeing brothers

If only those who judge could be drawn across the schism

See this World with eyes that see compassion, not derision

Recognise the truth that all our dreams are built on fate

They may find some understanding in a way they can relate

But sadly I’m aware that this wont resonate with some

And when it comes to empathy, many are just numb

For even though our lives may forever intertwine

That won’t make your experiences, feel the same as mine
