WE ARE MORE
I talked to the Grasshopper this morning,
asked him why do you walk and not hop?
I have been watching quite bewildered.
Grasshoppers always hop.
The Grasshopper simply said;
I learnt to walk.
It was fun and I could look around.
How fixated had I been, putting him in a box.
The “hopping box””.
Now, this made me ponder,
why and how often do we do this?
Limit others and ourselves.
With labels and categories
each fitting an appropriate box.
Like the wise Grasshopper we should know
we contain many shades and hues,
many skills and dreams.
Why deny all these for one comfortable tag?
Why not dare dream, paint, write
stay in professions we love
Yet, not let the title be you
We are all so much more.
