The wrinkles
Tired visage
I see an old woman

Beauty,  youth
exuberant charm
I see a young lady

Put yourself in others shoes
Delve deeper
Relook, rethink

Change your perspective
Discern, discriminate
Everyone sees through a different lens

Drop your baggage of  preconceived notions
Unlearn and unwind
And you will see the light

Pairs of Opposites

March 20, 2011 4 comments

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
