“A New Lens”

I see the world differently.

through a lense framed in plastic

to see people for who they are

rather than where they are.

To find sonder,

the realization that others

live a life just as complex

as our own.

To empathize, connect,

and live through another point of view,

without suffering from the disease

of “tunnel vision” ourselves.

When we see others

as more than just strangers

passing by, we find true joy,

true humanity.

Through the pupils of another,

we see grace, acceptance,

and can discover our similarities

more numerous than any inequality.
