To See

I wish I could look in the mirror and see what you see.

I wish I could see you as you are.

I wish I could see this world as you see it.


I’m locked inside this body, this limited frame of reference.

I can’t see from above or behind.

I’m unaware of the bigger picture playing out.


What I see is what I see.

It’s not necessarily accurate, nor true.

It is merely my perception


Where I’m standing

What I’ve experienced

Who I’ve become


Help me hold my views with open hands.

Help me accept my undeniable limitations.

Help me to judge rarely, slowly, and with great humility.
