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
rather a vehicle
to carry those thoughts
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
I respect your views
and you are welcome too
Is this not the point of
living in an amicable society
the very essence
