We must stop imposing our views on others.

Looking Outward

By L. K. Craft


As a child I looked up to everyone
As a teen I looked up to many
As a young adult I looked up to few
Today I don't look up,
Instead I look outward at all..

 

Time and age changed me
I welcome disagreements and differences.
I have no desire to impose my view or beliefs on anyone.
Respectfully, I won't allow you to impose yours on me.

 

If you believe your wisdom is greater than mine,
Or that your expertise makes you more enlightened . . .
Trust in the way you live your life,
I will see you and may chose to learn from you.
Or maybe I won't, that is my right.

 

Do not talk at me,
Talk with me.
Do not threaten or manipulate me.
There is no beauty in such tactics.

 

We were all granted ‘free will.'.
I no longer offer mine up to be controlled,
Nor do I attempt to take control of others.
If Peace is ever to be a reality,
It will be at the threshold of true acceptance of differences.

 

Stop with the comparison, competition and rankings.
To compare is to devalue something against the other.
We are all just people wanting to love and be loved.
We live off the same oxygen,
And each will die when their heart stops at death.

 

We must learn to see everyone as equal.
Understand that to be our brothers keeper,
We must learn how to be our brothers brother first,
Such relationship is built on love and respect.
And most of all, it's grants all the right to simply be free.

I found you through your Antique Roadshow article and I'm glad that I did. I very much enjoyed this poem and agree wholeheartedly with its content. You expressed yourself clearly and with eloquence. Well done.

A breath of fresh air in this "me me me" world! Very well said, to be our "brother's brother first." A good goal for each of us.

well lady poet...I see you and I are on the same wavelength with this piece...and I cannot agree with you more. Excellent work!

You have expertly written the solution to all friction in this world.
Nothing, IMHO, is more dangerous than a closed mind, unwilling to listen and consider.

With many others, you raise your soul-voice, Linda, to praise Now's voice, not others-seen perspectives, what is going on in now, Now, beautifully.
