Life looks different

When you see through other’s eyes

A desire to understand

Is a must for one to grow


If things have been bad

If your hopes are not fulfilled

It’s easy to blame others

When you are at fault


It will take courage to look

Not spend your time accusing 

Take responsibility

It’s a work of art 


Desiring understanding

To want to know above all

What it takes to be loving

A desire to change

  1. Terry, as always, you are so on target. “It is easy to blame others when you are at fault.” My, how true this is. For me; For others. Thanks for continuing to share. One of my great treasures is when you post another Haiku!
