Ask My Story

Every passing person carries
A story woven intricately with
Emotions, moments never forgotten.
All connected together like a web.

The thoughts that run through
Every mind that walks past me.
I wonder at the people they miss,
The life they have lived.

Things they would stop to tell,
Faces animated with the true story
Behind the narrative of what happened.
If only I had the courage to ask.

Chimamanda Adichie: The danger of a single story

Chimamanda presents her understanding of the dangers of a “single story” in a very moving presentation. Everything¬†surrounding¬†us is a trajectory to our own perspectives and experiences however limited they may be. What I call the educated blind. We often find ourselves certain of our knowledge of someone or something to the extent that we blatantly ignore any other stories and or believe the first ones too strongly. Keeping our understanding of the world, open to new and improved experiences is important. I will go on to say, the same applies to many personal occasions where we are so often convinced by one story enough to be blinded to all others. Be it the media, that tells the single story, or the gossiping queens of our society, we must be careful about what we believe.
