Poem: Understanding from Within

When I try to see the world
I become like a blind man
Unable to see beyond self
Too big in its immenseness 
Of diversity and divergence
To understand with one set of eyes
Only by my turning my eyes inward
Do I see any permanence of truth
I remain always me regardless
The world continually changes
Quicker than my perception does
I am always the constant rock
On which I stand to see heights
That are greater than myself

A writing prompt inspired by Eugi focused on “Viewpoint.”
