Colored by experience

We who stand safely on land 
May contemplate the sea that lies beyond 
With fear or longing, depending on experience. 
When will we realize how our experience colors 
Everything we contemplate; 
 That our convictions of right and wrong 
Might subtly shift, were we to stand 
In another’s shoes 
 And breathe the life they’ve lived?
