Another Why?

Another Why?

why do we use our imagination
to fill in another’s persona?
is this not our common practice
to paint a picture of who they are?

like a printed wrd that misses a vowel
we can still understand what it is
can we not accept the experiencing of another
without filling in the gaps?

who are we to guess and infill
risking an error of judgement?
and judgement it is when we imagine another
into a persona fabricated from our minds

let us instead feel into relationships
and allow feelings to guide the way
asking questions, curious, respectful
seeking the wholeness of another
and honouring who they are
