Moths & butterflies, squirrels & rats; different as day & night.
Though, afternoons have their eves & what would the dawn be without light.
We connote value & appeal by granting names with innate worth.
Taxonomy of the reviled & adored our grasp over Earth.
We label offspring to inspire our love & our esteem for them…
Willfully ignorant both are imperiled by opinion’s whim.
The love we garner & esteem we earn are born of our actions.
One of which has been to name the world & break it into factions.
Across the universe we lord our power while accruing blame.
For in the end outcasts will rule by defying what’s in a name.
I see the world through a Painter’s eyes and process it with a Poet's Heart....it's quite a harsh place for the soul. It scratches and wears your true self down, at times, but the Beauty is Addictive. I feel for everyone I encounter. Everyone I encounter is a teacher if I'll let them be. I Empathize with everyone I talk to & I Think about Everything-LEVi
