“My Way and Your Way” by Shalini Narang

If I am wrong, does that make you right?
Between day and night,
There’s a period of twilight,
When dark merges with light.

Points of view are rarely white and black,
As perspective exist on myriad rack, 
Where facts and feelings stack.
Restricting to binary elements is a thinking lack,

Looking beyond obvious is essential,
Since growth happens beyond provincial,
And understanding the differential, 
Is vital to appreciate that varied viewpoints are beneficial.

Having opinions is easy,
Understanding makes many queasy.

Several paths can lead to a desired end,
People can prefer different bend,
Curved-straight, long-short, shaded-unshaded,
Let not one path make us jaded.
