Meditation on Motives

The world is a scary place

when viewed through fearful eyes.

“Are you looking at me?!

Nobody said you could look at me.

Keep your eyes to yourself.”

That way you can’t see me as I am –

frightened, anxious, shy,

beautiful, brilliant, valuable-

human –

just like you.

Just let me look at you – 

give me a chance to know you,

to appreciate you,

to share life with you.

Just give me a chance.

Just give me a chance.

look at each other
