Private man

19 Dec



Despite all of this

despite all you see

all you read

all you hear

all you surmise

all you guess

all you deduce

all you imagine

despite all you believe

and all evidence

to the contrary

I am

a private man.

    Have you ever read the story of the four blind men and the elephant? Each touched a different part and swore that what THEY had a hand on was exactly what the elephant was… and though none were entirely wrong, none were exactly right…. it’s all subjective… even how others view us, privately or not. *smiles*
