Those lucky enough to find it
Will throw it away.
Those who cannot see it
Will scorn it.
And all the while
Someone out there
Will be wishing
For a chance at both.

incredible. this peice is an ode to the reality of what "love" is like for different people. it seems that too often people are so focused on thier persepctive that its like you cant see the other. so thank you for opening the persepective.

Beautiful. Short and sweet and inredibly meaningful and truthful. Thank you for sharing (and teaching a long-winded person a lesson in the beauty of brevity) and please keep writing!
