  • Being or Not Being

    Being or not being.
    Seeing or not seeing.
    To many that is all there is,
    an either or, an is not is.
    A hard way to be,
    a hard way to see.
    Ignoring what is in between
    or forcing it to be unseen.
    Missing nuance, shades of grey.
    Missing out on what others say.
    Because if its not the same it's wrong.
    It isn't part of their own song.
    As sad as I may find these views,
    I cannot say they are not true
    because I believe that there is room
    for many different views to bloom.
    And probably not a one's all true;
    there is at least a point or two
    of each that's something of some worth
    to those of us living on this earth.

    A truly diplomatic statement, Muttado1sb! One with which it is nearly impossible to disagree.Thus, I agree. Well, done, poet!

      Thank you, MHenry. Sometimes, though, I have to remind myself of it.
