Forest or trees?...

one is starved.
worshipping tidbits offered.
another tolerates, mostly.
accepting what suits
at the time.
lines drawn for one
by another.
both justify themselves
to themselves.
truth carefully ignored.
for now.

Humans.....we're a strange breed aren't we?

Again, truth captured in a flashbulb moment.

Strange, indeed. Sad in many ways.

Excellent put forward!

Well, the title sure works.
I guess I think we're all of us starved, and likewise, all of us tolerant.
Sort of.
But then, I'm also always wondering if it's a case of not seeing the tree for the forest or the other way around.

Anna - thank you and welcome!

Berry- I think we only let ourselves see what we want at the time.
Eventually, something happens that forces us to see the truth.
Some people put up with a lot to get what they want. Ignoring truth in the beginning causes more pain in the end.
