It is all in the way you see it.
Through your eyes.
Not through anyone else’s
Walk a mile in their shoes, then you’ll know.
No you won’t.
Because your life is still your life.
To go back to after you’ve walked the mile
The mile that takes you nowhere.
It is not a mile, or seven, every day, to school.
Or to the river to draw water
Or a mile long run, because you’re scared.
Because you have no other option.
No, the mile you walk is just to try it out. To see.
But you can’t see.
Because you are still looking through your eyes.
It is just the way it is.
