The failure to see

“I have looked at the world and have failed to see the painting.”

If all you do is look at hope you never see hopes reasons.

If all you do is look at joy you miss the sweetness of sorrows.

If all you do is look at wars you’ll never see the battles.

If all you do is look at colors you’ll never see the oppressions.

If all you do is label and categorize, you’ll never see the kings and queens handing out the colored markers.

If all you do is look at people you’ll never see the strings.

I have looked at the world and have failed to see the painting.
