The Binocular View
Sometimes it takes the prisoner to understand what freedom really is,
and maybe only the humble heart can recognize when pride is slipping in.
It takes a child to trust the wisdom of the old one's words,
and perhaps only a dying man can realize what a healthy life is worth.
Sometimes it take the one who has completely lost
to appreciate what it means to be first to cross the finish line,
and maybe only a penniless person can truly comprehend the value of a dime.
It takes the one down in the valley low to take awe at the mountain high in the air,
and perhaps only the eyes looking from the farthest distance can get the closer view of what is truly there.
"A penny will hide the biggest star in the Universe if you hold it close enough to your eye." ~Samuel Grafton
