Seeing

 

Seeing

 

We say that we see

but do we really

we look

but we don’t really see

We look at the surface

the stuff on top

we don’t look hard, long, and deep

We look just enough

Enough to make an assumption

we don’t look deeper

to watch

Where we’re no longer

just looking

but we see

Seeing is different

Seeing doesn’t judge

it understands

It knows that

that there is always more

Seeing takes time

it doesn’t just stop

and look

It looks until it sees

Seeing understands that

that we are more complex

than we are simple

but yet we only want

want to choose to look

look on the

top

I know that everyone can’t do it

some people aren’t

compelled to do it

To look a little longer

before you open your

mouth

look like you don’t

you don’t already know

how it’s going to end

Seeing knows

that’s not all to it.
