{interconnection}poem x e.l. jayne

these days,

you pick your side, your group, your argument,

not this one, but that one.

our interconnection is taken for granted.

people only want to surround themselves,

with other like-minded people. 

unlike any other species, 

we’ve evolved because of our immense ability to work together;

I, for one, wouldn’t want to count myself out of that.

–e.l. jayne

    Completely agree. Evolution comes from listening, learning from others with differing perspectives, sharing, disagreement, dialogue and conversation. If you stop listening, take sides and focus on your own opinion, you no longer learn.
    Sympathies to those who make a different choice.
    Thank you for another insightful post!!💚🌸💚🌸

      I completely agree as well! Being wrong is no longer a worry of mine, at least I am learning and I never claimed to be perfect anyways 🙂 Thank you for reading and I’m glad there are people like us out there!

      I could not have said it better. I fear over the last ten years our media is driving us away from any dialog with people that don’t agree with the day’s narrative. If you don’t drink the kool-aid, you are racist or a xenophobe. Healthy debate is gone in public and starting to disappear in private.

        Yes, that is unfortunate. I enjoy picking the brains of people who I don’t agree with, because many times I find we agree on the same values but we have a different way of achieving those said values. We work better when we work together, and that’s what has enabled us to evolve as a humanity to where we are today.
