Individuality equates to uniqueness

Not one individual is the same as another

Commonalities exist between individuals

Differences are prevalent

We are one of a kind

Perspective is how one interprets

Our individual perspective is shaped in life

By our experiences, our culture, our values

We see things a certain way

We attach emotions to certain things

We prioritize our lives based on perspective

Two individuals looking at the same piece of artwork

Listening to the same piece of music

Tasting the same dish of food

Smelling the same flower

Touching the same form of material

Can have drastically different perspectives

One can attach a positive emotion to those experiences

The other may attach a negative emotion

Neither one may necessarily be right

Neither one may be wrong

Perspective is personal evaluation

Universally there may not be a right or wrong

Understanding perspective is important in how we communicate

How we build connections

The more open-minded you are to others’ perspectives

The easier it is to sympathize and understand them

Let those individuals with different perspectives enhance your life

Let them teach you a different way of seeing the world

May they broaden your horizons and open your mind

Go against rigidity

Not all perspectives have morality

Not all are good in the common sense of the word

Defining good and evil is another topic to tackle

For now it’s perspective

Through the knowledge of which can help us in disagreements

Help us to build friendships

Help us to build an identity


Oh How I Wander

Oh how I wander

My eyes fixated on the dance of leaves in the wind

The gliding flight of clouds in the sky

I stare longingly into the sun

Its rays bending around and piercing through the white

These images hold my attention

They leave me in awe and thoughtless

Oh how I wander

Thoughts will race with no finish line in sight

One thought will lead me down a path to the unknown

While I walk more pull me in different directions

I get lost within the wilderness of my mind

Future pulls me one way

Past drags me another

No sense of direction

No sense of home

Oh how I wander

I take a breath

Close my eyes and accept this state

Slowly as I inhale and exhale

I try and find a center

The sporadic images



Continue to barrage me

Oh how I wander

I can sense my heart rate rise

My palms sweat

Sensing my stomach I breath through it

Home is not far now

Clearing the distraction and the wilderness

I see the moment I wish to capture

I am in the present

I do not wander
