Perception-a matter of discussion-Megha Sood

Lately, the discussion of Laurel vs Yanny on the internet had so much of
discussion and uproar about it that It has inspired me to write this poem.
Let me know your thoughts.


Difference of opinion

a matter for discussion

should open our closed thoughts

open new spaces to possibility

and should widen our perception

they should not be served as 

gateways for our narrow

preconceived emotions

rather a vehicle

to carry those thoughts

to inception

those little tiny thoughts

translucent or may be opaque,

wandering in deep crevices of our

beautiful and resplendent minds

should be the food for thoughts

not our tricks for perception

Welcome the thoughts and varied opinions

be open to facts and to fictions

what relevant or what is not

should not hamper 

your vision

I respect your views

and you are welcome too

Is this not the point of 

living in an amicable society

the very essence

of our humble existence?

  1. Silly me, I was thinking this would a humorous response to one of the more unusual and yet fascinating information age memes that we so enjoy being distracted by. Defying that expectation, this poem of great depth and meaning struck me and moved me. It says so much about modern society and the antidote: Listening with Humility. Thank you for sharing this, Megha! First… yanny… then on head phones… laurel… totally bizarre. — Stephen
