What Do You See? – Written Thursday 30th June 2010 (Aged 35)

What Do You See?

do you see people
really see people?
beyond the surface
and do you reflect
do you step back and look
we judge the abstract
and beyond that
we just give out boxes
into which,
we expect people to leap
of course,
we say that we understand
but it’s from our point of view
we say we know people
but we only do that
by inflating our opinion
do you see people
really see people?
do you know people
really know people?
