Our lives become the lens we look through
The lens we live through
I see your gifts – your potential
You see my gifts – my uniqueness
Or do we?
You seem to fear me
You seem to judge me
You see and experience me as an “other”
Deserving of treatment that is “less than”
Is it that your lens never expanded
Beyond your narrow world?
Can you see me for who I truly am?
Can you see beyond your narrow world?
Or is it that I can’t see beyond mine?
