Avant garde

From your musical tastes to your political views, were you ever way ahead of the rest of us, adopting the new and the emerging before everyone else?

We can never get over this habit of comparing ourselves with the rest of the world.  There are those who take pride in conforming to popular beliefs and opinions whereas there are others who ride the high horse by claiming that they stand out from the crowd and are unique.

As individuals we can celebrate our uniqueness, our choices and we don’t have to care if we are avant garde or conservative.

All our life we cannot be looking for references and yardsticks else we can never find new ways of doing things or think out of the box.

Tall and short
Beautiful and ugly
Thin and fat
Rich and poor

We compare and contrast
In this dilemma of choice
Our life is ruled
By pairs of opposites

Will there be day without night?
Would we know good without evil?
How can there be spring without autumn?
Would the rich exist without the poor?

We play with illusion
Our senses run amock
When will we see the truth?
The real from the unreal

    That was really good to read, especially “day without night, good without evil” etc. It is so hard to not compare!
