Foggy vs Clear

Looks certainly have deceived me!
Without trying, you are who you are
Without doubt
A faint star only because of your place
In our place
Lands you so very far
Only because of distance
You are a star shining so brightly
Maybe even brighter than the rest
Our eyes tell us 
You are so small
I may perceive a human to be the length of my fingernail
As I stand upon some rooftop
If I were to stand side by side with this human
Realize truth! 
My eyes have deceived me
I get a closer look -
or might I say
I place each object side by side
and witness truth
This is still open for interpretation 
Until I can place every single thing
In the same exact space
Observe every detail
Who am I to even ASSUME 
The truth?
This object has its own interpretation
As we do as well
Until things appear the same
From afar 
Under our noses 
There will be no total understanding 
Of the truth
I see you star
You are who you are
Without doubt
I learn from you
You have the appeal so very appealing to me
I learn from you 
As I have learned my eyes have deceived me
You inspire me 
Not to mold into what I perceive others perceive me as
To only be me 
This foolish chase is an endless race
I end this by first accepting me

    When you love yourself you can then truly love others... from soul-searching to self-affirmation. BRAVO, Brittany! Best wishes, Keith

    Brittany, this is powerful poetry. I like how the contradictions help weave together the theme here....and in the end, we can only shed the assumptions, misinterpretations and preconceptions, by accepting ourselves. There's a lot going on in these lines.
