The window

More often than not my opinions and views are blocking me from seeing the real picture. In this way I predefine the world I see. But luckily, like Leonard Cohen says in his beautiful song Anthem, "There's a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in."

My mind
a window
which
plastered with newspapers
defines my view
of the world

A tear
a window in the paper
through which
light reveals
a new inside
and outside world
