Pesky Smudges

 

Snap judgments
Born of
Finely honed
Intuition
Can be
Invaluable
In deciphering
Friend or foe
In a
Heartbeat

The problem
Arises
When we fail to
Periodically
Wipe clean
Our perceptual lenses
Of the
Ever-present
Smudges
Of
Personal bias
And
Prejudice

 

Inspired by Daily Prompt – Assumption

  1. In a time of hearing so many expressions of self judgement and judgment of others I find the wording “smudges of personal bias and prejudice” carries a feeling of gentleness, kindness and soothing self acceptance that softens my being.
