Your Point of View – Written October 2009 (Aged 34)

Your Point of View

you define ignorance
as people –
simply not accepting your point of view
but that is not ignorance
that is about you

in truth,
to some degree,
we are all ignorant
until we start to climb life’s tree
exploring branches
amassing life experiences
and taking chances

you define ignorance
as people –
simply not agreeing with you
but that is just about control
and a need to be right –
in everything that you do
strangely, that approach suggests –
the person who is the most ignorant is you




James Garratt – 2009
