How do we decide,
what to assume about people?
Reflex and defense,
protection from a threat?
Or injustice of thought,
blocking happiness and regret?
Is it a culture or upbringing,
bearing no reflection or consideration?
Or a lack of care, education, and careful thought?
Coming and going out of my life,
gaining only tangible seconds,
but hours in strife.
You bring my life great paragraph,
which turn the pages of enlightenment.
