Exceptions

Black and white thinking

is simple and rigid

Stale and predictable

Solid and stagnant

It does not allow 

for exceptions and alterations

changes mid stream

Doors that may open

right in front 

of eyes

that have blinders on

Black and white thinking

keeps out the possibilities

that we may be wrong

in the very place

where we need to see something new

Black and white thinking

keeps to the outside edge

Ignores the middle

where the colors flourish

 twirl and blend

and create possibilities

    Haha, I swear you’re writing about me so many times! I am guilty of black and white thinking, which gets me into all kinds of discussions; heated and non-heated. It is another of my traits that I need to work on. Again, thanks for posting 🙂 x
